The Old Man & the Gun Rated 12A

The Old Man & the Gun

Dir. David Lowery. USA, 2018. 1h 33m. Starring Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Tika Sumpter, John David Washington.

A warm-hearted portrait of the exceptionally charming gentleman bank-robber Forrest Tucker, who went on one of the most infamous robbery sprees in American history without firing a bullet. Robert Redford bows out of his extraordinary acting career at the age of 82 with this folksy throwback to his 1970s pomp.

‘Lowery’s latest feature proves his wide-ranging talent as a filmmaker, but also underlines an important common theme connecting his work: the unique power and poignancy of storytelling.’ ★★★★ Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies

'Loose-limbed, rascally and Texan to its bones, The Old Man & the Gun is a throwback to an era when making beautifully understated crime comedies was the peak of Hollywood's ambition’ ★★★★ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
