The Old Man and the Gun

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. He grew into a career bank robber who broke out of prison 18 times, including a daring escape from San Quentin at age 70. The film covers his twilight years, and an unprecedented string of daring heists that confound authorities and enchants the public. Wrapped up in this chase are a detective who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman who loves him 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.”
