The Old Man and the Gun

Showed at Images 12/7/2018–12/13/2018

Starring: Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek, Elisabeth Moss, Tika Sumpter, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Tom Waits

Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) has been on the wrong side of the law since he was a teen. A career bank robber who knocked over countless banks and broke out of prison 18 times, Forrest became something of a folk hero in his twilight years when he launched an unprecedented string of daring heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.

Based on a true story, this charmer of a film also stars Casey Affleck as a detective who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft and Sissy Spacek as a woman who comes to love Forrest in spite of his chosen profession.

  • Director: David Lowery
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Runtime: 1 hour 33 minutes
  • Genre: Drama

The Old Man & the Gun eschews pastiche for a sweet, affable character study that resurrects Redford’s original star power with a wet kiss. The entire picture amounts to a low-key cinematic resurrection.”
