... a bit heavy on talk and light on action, the film grapples with tough issues at the soul-level, instead of selling us feel-good lies or cynicism.

Smart cinema for folks who like to think for themselves rather than be spoon-fed by over-eager filmmakers.

It's probably impossible for a movie featuring Thornton, Freeman, Dunst and Hunter to be bad or uninteresting, and Levity is neither.

...rescued by the quiet power of Roger Deakins' cinematography - watch how, every now and then, a streak yellow flares in his gray fields - and the quality of the main performances.

Beautifully cast and acted, smartly written, done with excruciating care and glowing Roger Deakins cinematography, it's a film that, in some ways, suffers from its own seriousness, the very passion and guts that make it special.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Whenever the dour drama Levity threatens to become too painfully biblical, an intriguing character quirk or outburst of the title quality brings the proceedings back down to earth.

Thornton is a bit of a striking misfit, lanky-framed and sunken-eyed, with gray hair drooping to his shoulders
