"...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 Tallarico, RogerEbert.com
Academy Award winner Robert Redford has played many charisma-laden rebels and renegades in his expansive career - the sharpshooting train burglar in Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid or the con artist in the classic caper The Sting. In the film he recently announced will be his last, The Old Man & the Gun, Redford brings to the screen the rollicking true life of Forrest Tucker, from his audacious escape from San Quentin at age 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes fascinated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek) who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.
