THE OLD MAN & THE GUN (12)
BIOGRAPHICAL crime comedy based on a 2003 article of the same title in The New Yorker magazine. In 1981, Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford, pictured, in his final screen appearance) pulls off a series of bank robberies, predominantly with his ageing associates Teddy (Danny Glover) and Waller (Tom Waits). During the getaway from one hold-up, Forrest evades police by stopping to help a stranded motorist called Jewel (Sissy Spacek). Meanwhile, Texas detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck) becomes fascinated by Forrest’s career on the wrong side of the law.
