White Wall Cinema: THE OLD MAN & THE GUN

April 3 @ 7:30 pm 10:00 pm

This is the remarkable true story of Forrest Tucker, who confounded the authorities and enchanted the public by staging an audacious escape from maximum-security prison San Quentin at the age of 70, in order to embark upon a string of bank heists armed with little more than his personal charisma. Robert Redford (All The President’s Men) deploys all his charm as the ageing bank robber in this movie that serves as a beautiful final starring role for the screen great and in a touching tribute to his own career.

Accompanied by a marvellous cast that includes Sissy Spacek (Carrie/Badlands), Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea / Oppenheimer) as the Police Detective tasked with catching the world’s most polite criminal, Tika Sumpter (Southside With You), Tucker’s accomplices played by the marvellous duo of Danny Glover (The Color Purple) and Tom Waits (Down By Law) as well as appearances by John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman/Tenet), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (The Wire) and Keith Carradine (Nashville). Helmed by visionary director David Lowery (responsible for A24’s A Ghost Story, and The Green Knight) this is a wonderfully poignant, funny, wistful take on the ‘Catch Me If You Can’ style crime caper.
