    Those who can forgive the director's pretensions will discover some fine filmmaking.
  2. Thornton has made so many bad movies and become so notorious as a talk-show eccentric that it's easy to forget what a good film actor he can be.
  3. A meditation on guilt, remorse and redemption -- is unrelentingly heavy.
  4. The actors, too, bring more realism -- more gravity, if you will -- to the film than its wobbly premise deserves.

    Freeman and Hunter are both overqualified for material this ponderous, but she plays along, while he appears to have made a minimal emotional investment in the oncoming avalanche of coincidences and cliches.
  6. Haven't we seen this already?
  7. 16
    Ponderous, pretentious and boring, Levity becomes ironic on top of itself. You won't pity these people. You'll start laughing at them. Like a clown.

    Above average story about a man seeking redemtion and a new purpose in life. Billy Bob Thorton shines again in this well worth watching movie. This movie explores one mans challenges with dealing with his own mistakes. I think we have all have the desire to make amends from time to time. Therfore this movie can appeal to most audiences.

    This movie has an amazing cast, but it was a bit slow moving for me. If this was a book that I could put down and pick up at will, it would have easily been 5 stars. It is so well written, but as a movie, it was quite slow. Expand
