After a career spanning more than 50 years, this is Robert Redford’s swan song.
The Old Man & the Gun is a biopic of Forrest Tucker (Redford), a criminal who achieved notoriety in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s with a string of bank robberies as part of the media-coined ‘Over the Hill Gang’. The film follows Tucker through the last of his crimes during his twilight years, as well as the attempt by Detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck) to track down the peculiarly friendly bank robber. While it’s bittersweet to see a Hollywood legend step out of the limelight, it’s heartening to see Redford loving every single moment of his brilliant final outing.
