EVERY SECRET TAKES ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN.
A battered woman (Jennifer Lopez) takes refuge with her daughter at a ranch in Wyoming owned by the girl’s grumpy grandfather (Robert Redford). Think they’ll all start to like each other, even if it’s gonna take a while? If it talks like a Lasse Hallström movie and walks like a Lasse Hallström movie, then… You know what you’re getting. Beautiful countryside locations, a pretty score, great actors (Redford and Morgan Freeman are terrific as two curmudgeons) and, ultimately, a weak script that has every chance to spice things up but refuses to do so.
2005-U.S. 107 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Lasse Hallström. Cast: Robert Redford (Einar Gilkyson), Jennifer Lopez (Jean Gilkyson), Morgan Freeman (Mitch Bradley), Josh Lucas, Camryn Manheim, Becca Gardner… Damian Lewis.
