The Weather Underground was a 1960's left wing terrorist group whose raison d'être was revolution. Some of them were killed, some went to prison, and a few disappeared. This movie is about one who almost got away. Starring an amazing cast (Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Elliott, Stanley Tucci, and Richard Jenkins) this one, even at regular prices, is irresistible.
Take a look at the trailer and see if you want to come along.
There is no dinner planned before the movie because we should all be in line no later than 6:45. I will be at Ray's and Stark Bar for drinks at 6 PM, though, expecting to get in line at 6:30, if anyone wants to join me.
Robert Redford stars as Albany defense attorney Jim Grant who is trying to keep career and life from falling apart as he deals with the recent aftermath of his wife’s death. Laboring to raise her pre-teen daughter and maintain personal/professional equilibrium, Grant suddenly finds himself on the run from the law. Shia LaBeouf costars as Ben Shepard, the hard-working reporter whose investigation of a story about the arrest of a long-hidden 1960s radical sets into motion the chaos that overtakes Grant’s existence. Redford directs Lem Dobbs’s adaptation of Neil Gordon’s novel. Dobbs gives The Company You Keep the feel of an ensemble piece, with an all-star series of entrances and exits that include Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Elliott, Stanley Tucci, and Richard Jenkins.
