The Old Man and The Gun is  based on the true story of Forrest Tucker, a well-told story brought to life by a beautifully matched cast.  At the age of 70, Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) makes an audacious escape from San Quentin, conducting an unprecedented string of heists that confound authorities and enchant 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.

"Infused with Hollywood's history of outlaw charm, this is the type of glorious bank-robber movie they just don't make anymore"  Cameron Bailey
"pleasurably leisurely"  Maybe Redford's last movie
