#FIRSTLOOK: ROBERT REDFORD STARS IN “THE OLD MAN & THE GUN”
Right in time for Awards Season, THE OLD MAN & THE GUN gets a confirmed release date which suggests it just might be as great as it looks.
THE OLD MAN & THE GUN is based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), from his audacious escape from the 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 for his commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek) who loves him despite his chosen profession. David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story) writes and directs.
This definitely looks like a TIFF ’18 contender, yes?
Fox Searchlight release THE OLD MAN & THE GUN Friday, October 5, 2018.
