If there is a common theme running through Billy Bob Thornton's dramatic
roles, it would have to be a man's search for redemption. It can be found in
SLING BLADE, A SIMPLE PLAN, THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE, MONSTER'S BALL, THE
BADGE, and again in LEVITY, the film directorial debut of screenwriter Ed
Solomon. Unlike more 'commercial' actors, who would prefer playing innocent
victims framed for crimes (or would be 'heroic' in committing 'justifiable'
deeds), Thornton's characters are guilty of their trespasses, and accept
their punishment as deserved. This gives his performances a sense of reality
that is always interesting to watch.
In LEVITY, Thornton is Manual Jordan, a 'lifer' who has spent over twenty
years in prison for shooting and killing a kid during a convenience store
robbery, as a youth. The act was not a crime of passion, it was simply an
involuntary reaction to a quizzical 'look' the kid gave him, an expression
that would bond the two of them for years to come.
When a parole board decides to commute Jordan's sentence ("Why?" he asks,
stunned by the decision after saying he was content to remain in prison),
the middle-aged man finds himself alone in an alien, indifferent world, with
only the kid's 'ghost' as company.
Jordan decides to try and help the victim's sister, Adele (the ageless Holly
Hunter), without revealing his identity ("If you're trying to 'hit' on me,"
she quips, "I have to warn you, over the years, my standards have
lowered..."). She has her hands full with a wild teenaged son, and can't
quite figure out this taciturn, long-haired vagrant!
Answering a ringing pay phone, Jordan finds his way to a jaded lay minister
(Morgan Freeman, excellent, as always), who, recognizing him as an ex-con,
provides him with a place to stay, and a job, cleaning and directing teens
from a dance club into the broken-down mission he runs, next door. When
Jordan tells the old preacher that he doesn't believe in God, the old man
snaps, "I'm not asking you to! I'm asking you to work!" One of the rowdy
'club' teens (Kirsten Dunst), the daughter of a 'one-hit wonder' singer on
the skids, finds herself drawn to Jordan, despite his obvious disapproval of
As with all the best 'indies', there is a richness of character in LEVITY,
with each actor in top form. Subtly building to a surprising revelation and
an emotional climax, the film may not appeal to audiences who prefer
pyrotechnics to plot, but if you like movies with believable characters, and
an involving story that unfolds at it's own pace, you may find it to be a
very rewarding experience!
