Five Favorite Films with Morgan Freeman

Summary

He's played Dracula, Nelson Mandela, the American President, God, and Batman's tech guru, done time at Shawshank, rode with Eastwood and driven Miss Daisy, but Morgan Freeman is arguably just as famous for his presence as cinema's esteemed all-purpose narrator -- from his work on numerous history series to March of the Penguins to that haunting final line of Se7en, he's the guy filmmakers turn to when they want to infuse their work with a sense of awe and authority. This week, Freeman lends his particular vocal stylings to the IMAX documentary Born To Be Wild, a tale of two species of baby orphans -- orangutans and elephants -- fostered in the care of two rather remarkable ladies, Daphne Sheldrick and Birute Galdikas. Filmed in a 3-D that captures the creatures and their environments in vivid detail, the film, under its narrator's steady hand, makes an entertaining case for animal orphanages helping displaced babies back into the wild. We had the chance to sit down with Freeman recently, who graciously obliged our request to distill a lifetime's movie-watching into a list of his Five Favorite Films. "It's gonna be difficult," he admits. Back to Article
