  • As sticky-sweet and textureless as a bowl of pudding, though an amused central performance from star Morgan Freeman continually finds nuance and the unexpected where there ultimately isn't any. show more

  • The Magic of Belle Isle is a warm, human, feel-good experience about bringing out the best in people, one that brings out Morgan Freeman's best performance in years. show more

  • Even in an underwritten role, the delightful Madsen shines in her best performance since her comeback role in "Sideways." show more

    One of the best Socially Redeeming movies I have seen in years. Mr. Freeman , as far as I am concerned, has never been in a movie, that didn\'t allow me to be disappointed in any way. He , himself, is an example of a \"Socially Redeeming\" Man. I met Mr. Freeman, by chance, in a little town where filming was being done, and his was a gracious, kind, considerate person, of the locals. And welcomed their presence.
