This movie is fantastic! Morgan Freeman does it again; playing a stellar leading character that captivates the audience while teaching a lesson in transformation.

Don't listen to the critics and SEE

Even in an underwritten role, the delightful Madsen shines in her best performance since her comeback role in "Sideways." Full Review
San Francisco Chronicle
For about an hour of its running time, The Magic of Belle Isle seems like a tiresome, sentimental and slow-moving story about a grumpy old man redeemed by the sweet spirit of a rural town and by the nice family that lives next door. But no, it's even worse than that. Full Review
