At 76 years old, Sundance founder, legendary actor and filmmaker, and cinematic icon Robert Redford doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Not only has he booked a role in the blockbuster “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” he’s got “A Walk In The Woods” gearing up to shoot this fall with Richard Linklater, but coming first is “The Company You Keep.” Featuring an unbelievable ensemble and some politically charged material, this could be a nice intelligent diversion this spring movie season.
Directed by and starring Redford alongside (very deep breath) Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper and Susan Sarandon, the film tells the story of a former member of the Weather Underground who is forced to go on the run when a plucky young journalist threatens to expose his criminal past. In addition to the great batch of talent on screen, the movie features a score by the always excellent Cliff Martinez. Want a copy of that soundtrack along with the book by Neil Gordon the movie is based on?
