Play The Old Man & The Gun movie still

The Old Man & the Gun is 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. Also with Danny Glover and Tom Waits. – Peter Biskind

“…the movie is like a brand-new song carefully engineered to seem timeless. [It’s] gracious and skillful…” — A.O. Scott, New York Times
“[Redford] delivers a glorious, sly performance in a gloriously sly movie that masks its idiosyncrasy in brisk and breezy storytelling.” — Richard Brody, New Yorker
“Redford fans will be gratified by watching him play a gentleman thief in the tradition of David Niven and Cary Grant — and, come to think of it, himself.” — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
