A propos


Virtually a two-hander clocking in at less than 90 minutes, Brad Silberling’s '10 Items or Less' is a lovely antidote to the bloated, self-important movies that tend to dominate the season. This is a picture with nothing to prove, and not all that much to say, but its modesty and good humor make it hard to resist. Morgan Freeman, who is also the executive producer, plays a kind of parallel-universe version of himself. His character, who is never named, is a famous actor who hasn’t worked in a while. This actor seems somewhat adrift but not bitter or depressed. He thrives on attention and loves to observe human behavior. The obligation to do so is what brings him to a shabby supermarket far from his home in Brentwood, Calif. His next role will involve playing a store manager — or something like that; it isn’t entirely clear — and he hangs around to do research. And there he meets Scarlet (Paz Vega), who channels her frustration into her work at the express checkout line." — A. O. Scott, The New York Times
