A re-coming of age story
Uniting with director Rob Reiner once again after hit film The Bucket List, Morgan Freeman plays Monte Wildhorn, a famous novelist whose struggle with alcoholism has sapped his passion for writing.
Taking residence for the summer in a lakeside cabin in picturesque Belle Isle, Monte befriends the family next door"an attractive single mom (Virginia Madsen) and her young daughters"who re-invigorate his passions and help him find inspiration again.
Freeman's portrayal of the crotchety Monte has him cast firmly against type, to hilarious comic effect.
