Silver Screening: The Old Man & The Gun (2018)
Silver Screenings are for film fans aged 55yrs plus. Tickets are only £5 and include a free hot drink.
Robert Redford is Forrest Tucker, a man who succeeds in making an audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 and embarks upon an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and charms the public.
Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (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.
The Old Man & the Gun is Robert Redford’s last on screen performance.

“A delightful folk story from one of the best filmmakers working today — and a fitting final turn from Redford, all easy charm and grace” – EMPIRE
