Review: An Unfinished Life

Solid drama from the (late) Miramax line, very much in line with Lasse Hallstrom’s previous dealings with the Weinstein Brothers (Chocolat and The Cider House Rules). While it’s not a spectacular script, at it’s core it’s what you expect from it, and who doesn’t like a feel-good drama now and then.
Acting is strong as usual, with Robert Redford taking lead, and the always trustworthy sidekick role comes from Morgan Freeman. Then we have Jennifer Lopez (who actually did pretty good on screen before the singing gig started rising to her head), and it seems Hallstrom has things under control (or a lot of time to do re-takes), as even that is pretty good (then again, maybe it’s because the shots were all upper body shots).7½.
