    Those who can forgive the director's pretensions will discover some fine filmmaking.
  2. 75
    A thoughtful, almost poetic, piece that puts forth the argument that redemption is not easily achieved.

    It's an intriguing movie, and Thornton's performance is both fascinating and maddening.

    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.

    First-time director Ed Solomon, a comedy writer (MIB, both Bill and Ted movies), clots up Levity with symbols -- empty chairs, reflections, winter slush -- and achy, tastefully drawn characters.

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. Collapse
