Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Written and directed by David Lowery (A Ghost Story), The Old Man & The Gun is inspired by the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), a gentlemanly bank robber who escaped from San Quentin at the age of 70 and proceeded to execute a string of (strangely polite!) heists that confounded authorities. Casey Affleck stars as the detective who becomes captivated with Tucker’s crimes, while Sissy Spacek plays the woman who falls for his charms along the way. The film also stars John David Washington, Elizabeth Moss, Tika Sumpter, Danny Glover, and Tom Waits.

I've really liked David Lowery's work to date, so I was curious how this would be, especially considering the buzz around Spacek and Redford. I gotta say, it didn't disappoint. It's not a film to blow your mind, but it's endearing, and each performer provides something special to their character. And the aesthetic of the film was wonderful, which is to be expected with Lowery. Definitely worth a watch if you're into stuff that generates buzz.

If this really is Robert Redford's last film, what a way to go out!

If Redford really is done for good, this is a perfect way for him to say goodbye.

Redford has rarely been this commanding in his recent work, playing Tucker with a mischievousness in his eyes but also so much soul that his thieving feels more like an expression of some sad longing than a chronic criminal mind-set.

The film makes plenty of mileage from trading on the charm of a good bad boy, and Redford’s long experience in playing such roles serves him beautifully here; he knows by now he doesn’t have to push his attractiveness to be ingratiating. His work here is natural, subtle, ingratiating and doesn’t miss a trick.
