Director/co-writer David Lowery’s crime drama is based on the true story of Forrest Tucker, a career criminal who escaped from San Quentin State Prison in 1979 and embarked on a spree of bank robberies. Robert Redford stars as the gentlemanly septuagenarian robber. While evading a dedicated detective (Casey Affleck), he embarks on a late-life romance with a woman (Sissy Spacek) who accepts him in spite of his status as a wanted criminal.
