The Old Man and the Gun

US, 2018, 93mins, Cert.15

Film description

Director David Lowery (A Ghost Story) tells the ‘mostly true’ story of ageing gentleman bank-robber Forrest Tucker, audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70, and unprecedented string of heists, confounded the authorities and enchanted the public.

Screen legend Redford brings his irrepressible charisma to the role in what – if the actor’s announced retirement proves to be true – is his big screen swan song.

Imbued with the spirit of classic independent American cinema, Lowery’s distinctive movie also features magnetic performances from Sissy Spacek as Jewel, the apple of Tucker’s still-sparkling eye, and Casey Affleck as John Hunt, the detective who becomes increasingly frustrated at Tucker’s ability to evade capture. At times poignant, bittersweet and fizzing with chemistry between the two leads, The Old Man and the Gun is also a hugely entertaining crime caper.
