Robert Redford radiates charm playing an unrepentant, septuagenarian bank robber who can’t resist one more heist in this captivating film based on the true story of career criminal Forrest Tucker. He’s supported by an excellent all-star cast, including Sissy Spacek, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Elisabeth Moss and Casey Affleck, though Redford’s outlaw presence dominates, and the way writer-director David Lowery uses his iconic leading man gives the film its resonance. Redford has talked about The Old Man & the Gun being his last film as an actor. If that’s the case, he has chosen a brilliant, unforgettable way to bow out.
