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.
“I hope Redford changes his mind and this is not his final moment in the limelight, but if it is, what a lovely swan song, what a gorgeous swan.” – Collin Covert, The Minneapolis Star Tribune
