Amerikaanse drama uit 2002 van Ed Solomon, met Billy Bob Thornton, Morgan Freeman, Holly Hunter en Kirsten Dunst. Na ruim 20 jaar in de gevangenis te hebben gezeten voor de moord op een tiener, wordt Manual Jordan vrijgelaten. Hij is vastbesloten zijn leven weer zin te geven en om met zichzelf in het reine te komen, gaat hij de zuster van het slachtoffer opzoeken om haar te helpen. Brian Webster (Apollo Movie Guide,i) geeft 77 (van 100) punten: 'Slow-paced and low-key, this is a film that depends on strong acting. Thankfully, Thornton and Hunter are excellent, and are capably supported bij Freeman and Dunst.' Mick LaSalle (San Francisco Chronicle,i): 'In Levity, the characters barely smile, and the one time someone laughs, it's only from a nervous response to terror. Solomon creates a somber, dreamlike atmosphere in this, his feature directing debut, and the unusually strong cast (...) respond to his heartfelt script with perfomances in kind.'
