5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty in strange packages July 6 2004
I wish I could fill my library with movies exactly like this. When I first saw this movie, I sort of watched it in shock. Stories of this quality are so rare! First and foremost, this is about forgiveness. Each character in our story feels that they have failed in some way, and they're not sure how to simply make it right. To make peace. Large mistakes, little mistakes, these little devils tend to stay with us, sowing the seeds is discontent.
Manual Jordan (Billy Bob Thorton) is released from jail after 20 years and embarks on a mission to find redemption, although he doesn't really expect to find it. Perhaps it is the journey that is more important to him. He finds a preacher (Morgan Freeman) who is trying to reach a bunch of teenagers and steer them away from the destructive lifestyles they're leading. He runs a makeshift church/soup kitchen across the street from a local dance club.
Manual also comes in to the life of a woman (Holly Hunter) who is trying to steer her son away from the gang street life he is falling in to. By far my favorite piece of this story is played by the beautiful Kirsten Dunst. She is the emotional heart of the story as the confused party girl who dreams of a better life, but has no idea how to get there. Suffering from low self-esteem and an angry alcoholic mother, she drifts closer to harms way each night.
What is story has to offer is emotions in raw form. What would any of us do in extreme circumstances? Most of us will never know. These people do. Most of their lives have been impacted by one form of violence or another. These are decent people inside. People that made bad choices. The road to hell is paved with good intentions they say and little tiny mistakes.

4.0 out of 5 stars - June 28 2004
By A Customer
Considering the cast, I thought that Levity received a surprisingly small amount of attention. Most likely that's becuase it doesn't meet the standard for the type of movie average Americans enjoy.
I thought Billy Bob Thornton did an excellent job with his character. All of the characters draw you into the movie. Levity is quiet for the most part and somewhat grim, but at the same time it contains dark comedy throughout the entire length of the movie. A good movie overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gentle tale of redemption May 14 2004
How do we reconcile with the mistakes we have made in the past? This is a thought provoking story about a man's struggle to make amends for a murder he committed impulsively as a youth. Instead of distancing the viewer, the film suggests that we are all capable (if not guilty) of regrettable acts, and goes on to explore the ways a person can be of use in the world as opposed to merely "taking up space." The film has a meditative quality and a deliberate pace, but is very absorbing nonetheless. An excellent cast and moody soundtrack complement the screenplay. The only reason I didn't give five stars is that the plot is a bit cliched, and the main philosophical soliloquy is inexplicably recited verbatim twice in the film, so it begins to feel a bit didactic. Still, a very touching film.

4.0 out of 5 stars The direction of choices & regrets... Feb. 17 2004
Manuel Jordan (Billy Bob Thornton) is unexpectedly released from prison after having been incarcerated for two decades for murder, which he solemnly regrets committing. Free and moving Manuel stops frequently to contemplate his current actions and choices as he reflects on his juvenile mistake that he committed in a small convenient store some twenty years ago. By choice, based on repent, he ends up in the neighborhood where he committed the murder and by chance he ends up getting a small job as a janitor in a half-way home. Through his job and leisure time he does everything he can do in order to repent for his past crime. Manuel seeks up the sister (Holly Hunter) of the young adult that he killed, since he wants to display his regret of his crime. Levity is a film that gives the audience a chance to reflect on daily decisions and actions as we affect others continuously. Manuel's pondering is displayed with thoughtful cinematography and supported through a well written script, which leaves the audience with a decent cinematic experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great tale about redemption with a solid cast Dec 26 2003
I have yet to see a movie with Billy Bob Thornton, Morgan Freeman, Kirsten Dunst or Holly Hunter that I don't like. And this movie has all of them, so it was set up from the beginning as a movie that stood a big chance of becoming a classic in my book. And it did...
"Levity" brings forward the solid acting muscle of three consolidated actors and a rising new talent to tell a story about redemption in a way that leaves some ends open, yet makes you get up at the end and think positively about life and potential for overcoming guilt and negative past experiences. All the acting goes on over a tapestry of rich music woven by Mark Oliver Everett, to create one of 2003's most subtle yet powerful dramas.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great drama, well done and moving. Nov. 23 2003
Another example of how a great movie gets overlooked because it was too slow and too deep for our chills & thrills modern movie-watching habits. If you have the patience and intellect and heart, you will love this movie. Great performances all around.
