    Synopsis


    An Unfinished Life
    Two generations of a damaged family are brought together in this emotional drama. Einar Gilkyson (Robert Redford) was a once successful rancher whose spread went to seed after he developed a serious drinking problem. Now on the wagon, Einar looks after what's left of his spread with his friend Mitch (Morgan Freeman), a one-time cowhand who never fully recovered after being mauled by a bear. Einar once had a son named Griffin, but he died in a car wreck while Griffin's wife, Jean (Jennifer Lopez), was driving; Einar never forgave her for the death, and he had never met the granddaughter she was carrying until she arrived at his doorstep 11 years later. Jean has become involved with a violent man named Gary (Damian Lewis), and seeks refuge on Einar's ranch for the safety of her daughter, Griff (Becca Gardner). Einar reluctantly takes in Jean and Griff, giving them a place to stay as Jean looks for work and tries to put her life back together. But old trouble makes its way back to town in two ways -- Gary tracks down Jean and wants to make her pay for leaving him, while the bear who attacked Mitch comes down from the mountains looking for new prey. An Unfinished Life was adapted from the novel of the same name by Mark Spragg. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      This is absolutely one of the best films I've ever seen. We almost missed it. Somebody was asleep at the studio when "An Unfinished Life" was released with so little fanfare. The acting is superb, the scenery breath-taking. The story packs a powerful message of forgiveness and redemption. We laughed, we cried. This film has it all. "Brokeback Mountain" pales by comparison. I'm predicting "An Unfinished Life" is going to become a classic.

      Redford is playing himself as a rancher and is great. Freeman is just an old cowboy who is busted up and still is fighting for his friend. JLow is a young woman lost trying to find herself and keep her daughter together as a family. Becca (Griff) is a child who brings everyone togther without knowing it "she is a good kid". And Bart is just a bear "Dueing what Bears do". A great movie.

      This is a "Feel Good" movie that we all need once in awhile. I would let any of my nieces or nephews watch this. Even the seven year old. There is something about this movie that deals with abuse in a way that shows just enought violence to get the point across but not to much as to give nightmares to a seven year old. A good teaching tool for children as well as Adults.

      This film surprised me. I thought this would just be another "chick-flick", but the story within the story is what made it go from OK to VERY GOOD!

      This is a great movie especially with Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman and JLO. The mountain scenery is great. It has a very good plot.

      Good story about forgiveness and reconcilliation. Robert Redford and Morgan Freeman are excellent as usual.
