About the Movie

Morgan Freeman plays Monte Wildhorn, a famous Western novelist whose passion for writing hits an impasse. He takes a lakeside cabin for the summer in picturesque Belle Isle, befriending the family next door – an attractive single mom (Virginia Madsen) and her young daughters – who help him find inspiration again.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A pastel-colored, embroidered wall-hanging of a drama directed by Rob Reiner. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 4, 2012

Rotten: Shaggily sentimental and a few spells short of enchantment. – John Anderson, Variety, Jul 2, 2012

Rotten: It has some heartfelt performances and a nice, nondescript vibe, but it's largely unmemorable. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Jul 5, 2012

Rotten: It's predictably ironic that The Magic of Belle Isle champions the unparalleled power of imagination while displaying absolutely none of its own. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, Jul 3, 2012
