“An Unfinished Life” Movie Review

4-Watertowers ForCarol.com Movie Review(Heart Warming Family Drama)

Jean Gilkyson (Jennifer Lopez) has been beaten by her low life boyfriend for the last time. Jean and her 11 year old daughter, Griff (Becca Gardner), pack up their things and leave.

an unfinished life blogOn the road, they consult a map trying to figure out their ultimate destination. But Jean already knows where she is going: Wyoming, to stay with her estranged father-in-law, Einar Gilkyson (Robert Redford). When Jean was pregnant with Griff, 11 years ago, she was driving when her and her husband were involved in a rollover car accident. Her husband died.

Stubborn old man that he is Einar never forgave her and she is not welcome now…..except for Griff the grand-daughter he never knew he had.

A side story concerning a bear that mauled Einar’s lifelong friend, Mitch Bradley (Morgan Freeman), adds to the tension and a reason to film the scenery in beautiful British Columbia, Canada (standing in for Wyoming…).

“An Unfinished Life” is an amazingly good movie. Robert Redford, Jennifier Lopez, and Morgan Freeman….’nuff said.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this on Netflix.
