Inspired by a true story, The Old Man & The Gun centers on Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), 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. Also in the cast are Tom Waits, John David Washington, Keith Carradine, Elisabeth Moss and Danny Glover.
Writer/Director David Lowery’s beautiful film is a tribute to the talent and enigma of Robert Redford, a movie star of the highest order, who turned to directing, founding film institutions that have launched some of cinema’s brightest lights, and supported various important social causes, and here goes back to where it all started for him.
