The Old Man and the Gun (12A)
Cast. Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, Tom Waits.
Robert Redford gives an unforgettable final performance as smooth lifelong criminal in this based-on-a-true-story tale. Forrest Tucker has been to jail 18 times and now, at the age of 70, he’s made yet another prison escape and is on a nationwide string of heists with the help of his charm and good manners. John Hunt is the detective who develops an unusual respect for Tucker’s commitment to his craft, and Jewel is the woman who loves him despite his chosen profession. With glorious cinematography and a smooth musical score that nods to the gorgeous retro aesthetic of Redford’s classics, this is a gentle, captivating story that in many ways feels like a metaphor for Redford’s own life as an actor; filled with passion, mischief, and skill that thrives long after youth.
