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

  • 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
