The Old Man and the Gun

In his final film, Robert Redford charms one last time in director David Lowery’s true-life dramedy about an unrepentant bank robber and jail-breaker determined to live life by his own rules.

Time & Tickets

THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN is based on the true story of Forrest Tucker from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt, who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.

With Redford subtly invoking his own storied résumé as the embodiment of a certain masculine ideal, and a sublime supporting cast that includes Danny Glover, Tom Waits, and Elisabeth Moss, THE OLD MAN & THE GUN is both entertaining and elegiac. Infused with Hollywood’s history of outlaw charm, this is the type of glorious bank-robber movie they just don’t make anymore.

David Lowery, USA, 2018, 93 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Robert Redford, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Tika Sumpter, Tom Waits, Sissy Spacek, Elisabeth Moss.
