MEASURE OF A MAN REVIEWED

“Measure of a Man” is a semi-popular novel that had liberties taken with its film adaptation. The main change being that the film takes places in the 70s now. Well, that and it tries to riff on Ned Beatty’s rape in Deliverance. The rest of the film is pretty formulaic. However, I love what Donald Sutherland has been doing with roles recently. He knows he’s an older guy, but he wants to keep the suave he showed in the 1970s.

Is that possible? Well, Measure of a Man walks that line better than his recent work. I admire any older actor that refuses to turn into a grandpa or grandma when the twilight years hit. A talent doesn’t go away because they got a few wrinkles. To be honest, what hurts the film is how generic it plays. At a point, age takes us all out of that realm of caring about kids learning about the Facts of Life.
