David Stratton Recommends

A homage to 1970s American cinema, THE OLD MAN & THE GUN is a charming, beautifully crafted film about what it means to live a life.

Inspired by a true story, THE OLD MAN & THE GUN follows Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford in his final acting role), a career robber from the age of 14 who broke out of prison 17 times. The film opens on his 17th successful escape – at the age of 70. Tucker and his crew (dubbed the “Over-the-Hill Gang”) continue an unprecedented string of bank robberies that confound the 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 named Jewel (Sissy Spacek), who the charming Forrest meets and falls for.

Under the inspired direction of David Lowery, THE OLD MAN & THE GUN is a fun and thoughtful film, lovingly captured on 16mm and boasting a fantastic 70s era soundtrack. Redford delivers a magnetic performance as the charming, irrepressible Forrest – a man committed to making his twilight years the pinnacle of a life well lived.
