The Old Man & The Gun

At the age of 70, Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) makes an audacious escape from San Quentin, conducting an unprecedented string of heists that confound authorities and enchant the public.

Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (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.

"A love letter to a cinematic legend, serving as a perfect final film for someone who long ago surpassed mere actor status to become an icon."

Brian Tallerico,

"Robert Redford robs banks and steals your a virtuoso performance that feels like a valedictory. You want to salute him."

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"It's a light, warm story that's punctuated by the power of Redford's smile, one of the best special effects in movie history."

Adam Graham, Detroit News
