The first trailer and poster for Rob Reiner’s drama The Magic of Belle Isle have gone online.  The film stars Morgan Freeman as a famous Western novelist whose struggle with alcoholism has sapped his passion for writing. He takes a lakeside cabin for the summer in Belle Isle, where he befriends a single mom and her daughters who (naturally) help him to feel inspiration once again.  Though this is the same director as A Few Good Men and Stand By Me, Reiner’s recent output has leaned heavily toward Hallmark fare with pics like The Bucket List and Flipped, and The Magic of Belle Isle is no exception.  That said, I can say without hesitation that my mom will absolutely want to see this.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Madeline Carroll, Fred Willard, Kenan Thompson, and Kevin PollakThe Magic of Belle Isle will be available on iTunes on June 1st and opens in theaters on July 6th.

Here’s the synopsis:

Reuniting with his director from the hit film, The Bucket List, Morgan Freeman plays Monte Wildhorn, a famous Western novelist whose struggle with alcoholism has sapped his passion for writing. He takes a lakeside cabin for the summer in picturesque Belle Isle, and befriends the family next door–an attractive single mom (Virginia Madsen) and her young daughters–who help him find inspiration again.
