The Heart of An Unfinished Life
An Unfinished Life(2005) directed by Lasse Hallstrom and staring Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman and Jennifer Lopez...
This film can sometimes be slow and over-acted, but the story is quite touching.
Few films deal with the power of forgiveness as directly as this one. This film reminds us that forgiveness is not just freedom for the person who did wrong, but for the person who forgives.
Forgiveness is a beautiful thing, and many film climax to a moment were a character says "I fogive you." But this film is far deeper in it investigation of when forgiveness is appropriate and the change forgiveness is to make in us, and the difficulty and worth of forgiveness.
