Based on the true story - Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) has been on the wrong side of the law since he was a teen. He grew into a career bank robber who broke out of prison 18 times, including a daring escape from San Quentin at age 70. Now in his twilight years, he goes on an unprecedented string of daring heists that confound authorities and enchants the public. Wrapped up in the chase are a detective (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.

“Sometimes a movie arrives that charms its way into your heart... an unassuming, exuberant gift.” - Rolling Stone.

“A jaunty joyride, a valedictory for a beloved American icon and a giddy true story... about how the years go by, and who we are. It’s a story about all of us.” - Paste.

Rated PG-13 for brief strong language, 93 mins.
