The Company You Keep
Dir. Robert Redford. 2013, 125 mins. DCP courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics. With Robert Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Susan Sarandon. Robert Redford directs and stars in this gripping political thriller about a young journalist who stumbles upon the story of his career when he uncovers the identity of a wanted ex-radical activist who has been underground for five decades. With his new film The Company You Keep, Redford merges all his strengths as an artist, activist, and icon to create a masterful thriller about the still troubled legacy of sixties radicalism. Featuring a top-notch supporting cast, The Company You Keep is a fast-paced yet thought-provoking suspense drama that tempers its old-school thrills with a clear-eyed and nuanced appreciation of the still pressing issues it raises.
