Critic Reviews for Levity
wish I could find some enthusiasm for this film, which was given a wonderfully austere look by the cinematographer Roger Deakins... For all its seriousness, though, Levity struck me as pretentious and intractably lifeless.
Suffocates under its own good intentions and inexorable sense of doom.
In the end the film is undone by an overload of cliches, and by a gravity that never lets up.
Like pretty much everything else in Levity, [Thornton's] an earnest, faultlessly compassionate bore.
Audience Reviews for Levity
Thoughtful and compelling, Levity is an insightful drama that explores some deep issues. The story follows a convict that's seeking redemption and is taken in by a street preach who runs a shelter. Billy Bob Thornton, Morgan Freeman, Holly Hunter, and Kirsten Dunst lead the cast and give strong performances. The film is quite introspective and approaches its material in an unusual manner; which gives it a refreshing tone. Some of the character plots are underdeveloped, but overall the writing's pretty good. Though it's not completely successful, Levity is a smart and well-crafted film that has some rich storytelling.
This was a great story and if it was a book, it would have been amazing. As a movie however it was a bit slow.
Slow and straight-forward movie. I liked it...
