(NEW YORK) -- You may not realize it, what with The Amazing Spider-Man dominating movie talk this week, but Morgan Freeman has a new film out on Friday.
The Magic of Belle Isle, debuting in limited release, stars Freeman as a once-popular novel writer who escapes to a quiet lake town so he can recharge his batteries.
The movie was directed by Rob Reiner, with whom Freeman previously worked on The Bucket List. He says of Reiner, "He's fully grounded in the craft and knows exactly what he's doing. He's quick, and that means he's decisive. You know, he knows when he's gotten the shot."
When Freeman needs a vacation, where does he go? He tells ABC News Radio, "My favorite place is probably the Virgin Islands and the Grenadines. The temperature is right for me, there's lots of sun, which I need vitamin D. I have a boat, and that's the best sailing."
