Film Fest Gent - The Old Man & the Gun

"Having first been put away at age 15, Forrest (Redford) has spent much of his life in jail and much of his energy breaking out - he successfully escaped incarceration 18 times. Forrest is now in his seventies, free, and living in a retirement community, yet he cannot resist the lure of another bank heist. He assembles a gang who, though armed, rely mainly on creativity and charisma to claim their loot. They are pursued by Detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), whose official duty is galvanized by the purity of his love for the chase. With Redford subtly invoking his own storied resumé as the embodiment of a certain masculine ideal, and a sublime supporting cast that includes Danny Glover, Tom Waits, and Elisabeth Moss, 'The Old Man & The Gun' is both entertaining and elegiac."
