The Old Man & the Gun (12A)

The Old Man and the Gun

David Lowery (A Ghost StoryAin't Them Bodies Saints) directs this true tale of a senior citizen bank robber, played by Robert Redford in his final role.

Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), 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 (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.
