Win a double pass to The Old Man & the Gun preview screeningby The Listener
Announced as his final performance, Robert Redford stars in The Old Man & the Gun, a beautifully crafted film inspired by the true story of career robber Forrest Tucker. Following a daring prison escape at the age of 70, Forrest embarks on a string of bank robberies that confound the authorities and enchant the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated by Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and Jewel (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession. In a homage to the American classics that made him a star, Redford delivers a magnetic performance in The Old Man & the Gun, a fun, thoughtful reflection on a life well-lived.
