10 Items or Less (2006) - 2 Stars

I love Morgan Freeman and also THINKFilm movies, but I was disappointed in this one. Old man meets a young girl clerk at the grocery store and they become friends breathing life into each other. The whole story line was pretty unbelievable to me as I didn't feel a real connection for them until the end.

Known only as "Him" (Morgan Freeman) is coming to terms that his days are pretty much over in Hollywood. Once in the center focus, now the only gig he can get is with an Independent movie company. He drives around in a beat up Gremlin and goes to Carson, CA, to check out the role. But after his driver leaves him in a Latino community, he makes his way into a small grocery store where he meets clerk Scarlet (Paz Vega). Abandoned far from Brentwood, he relies on the compassion of this young girl to help him get back home. The trip takes both of them on a ride through personal revelations and both come out better people because of it.
