Jim Grant (Robert Redford) is a civil rights lawyer and single father who leads a normal life. Or so he would have you believe. Grant is a former militant and 1970s fugitive wanted for bank robbery and murder. He has been hiding from the FBI for over 30 years, posing as an attorney.
When Grant's identity is discovered and exposed by an aggressive young reporter (Shia LaBeouf), Grant begins a cross-country journey, determined to find the one person who can clear his name before the FBI can catch him.
Great casting and story. Sure Redford has aged as has Julie Christie etc. and provide really interesting characters in a well acted movie with a twist. Particularly love the scenery in the woods - gorgeous trees and mountains.
a finely crafted, thought provoking movie that does much more than relate characters needing to reconcile their past actions with the present. now they must re-examine their passions for fellow men in the context of their new families and lives they have made for themselves. the movie tells the viewer about social commitments and asks rather obliquely, what are you feeling and doing for your fellow men? we had vietnam and gave so much for our cause, the movie says. what about you?
