American icon Robert Redford shines in writer/director David Lowery's ("A Ghost Story," "Pete's Dragon") "The Old Man and the Gun," based on the true story of audacious bank robber Forrest Tucker.
The real-life Tucker escaped from San Quentin at the age of 70, embarking on an an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are a detective (Casey Affleck) who becomes captivated with Forrest's commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.
"Redford delivers a glorious, sly performance in a gloriously sly movie that masks its idiosyncrasy in brisk and breezy storytelling." —New Yorker
