THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN
(PG-13) 93min
Dates not confirmed yet
After a more than sixty year career in films, actor Robert Redford, whose breakout role was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in 1969 (unless it was Barefoot in the Park in 1967), has said this will be his final film performance. This light and breezy caper comedy based on true character Forrest Tucker, a non-violent gentleman criminal and escape artist profiled in a 2003 New Yorker article by David Grann, is directed by David Lowrey (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon). With co-stars Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, and Danny Glover and Tom Waits who play Tucker’s co-horts ‘the over-the-hill gang’, this is a charming, romantic film with a wistful spirit and wry humor.
