SCREEN legend Robert Redford shines as a career robber in the new film The Old Man & the Gun.
Redford is Forrest Tucker, whose life of crime began at the age of 14. The film opens on Tucker’s 17th successful escape from prison – at the ripe old age of 70.
Tucker and his crew, dubbed the Over-the-Hill Gang, continue an unprecedented string of bank robberies that confound the authorities and enchant the public.
Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Ben Affleck), who becomes captivated with Tucker’s commitment to his craft, and a woman named Jewel (Sissy Spacek), who the charming Tucker falls for.
The Old Man & the Gun opens in cinemas nationally from November 15.
