David Lowery (A Ghost Story, Ain't Them Bodies Saints) brings the heist genre to a human level, with this tale of a senior citizen bank robber, played by Hollywood royalty Robert Redford.
Driven by impulses more quixotic than pure greed, Redford's bank robber has all the charm and warmth we've come to expect across his seven decades in film. The rest of the cast manages to keep pace with Redford: aided by Tom Waits and Danny Glover in his gentlemanly crimes, paired romantically with Sissy Spacek, and pursued by Casey Affleck’s detective.
If, as has been reported, this is Redford final screen role, then it's a suitably independently spirited, effortlessly charismatic swan song.
