Robert Redford still knows how to wrangle up a cast of A-listers. His recent projects have showcased Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Matt Damon, Will Smith, and James McAvoy, and the living legend has lined up another impressive cast of actors for The Company You Keep. Out front and center is Redford himself – in his first major starring role since 2005’s An Unfinished Life – portraying a former Weather Underground radical who’s exposed by a journalist played by Shia LaBeouf. Toss in esteemed vets Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Chris Cooper, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Jenkins, Stanley Tucci, as well as Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick, and Brit Marling, and the title takes on a whole new positive meaning.
The new trailer digs deeper into the thriller aspects of the story, which evolves into a manhunt after Redford’s left-wing suspect sets out to prove his innocence, Fugitive style. Throw in echoes of Sneakers and All the President’s Men, and you have Redford’s most promising box-office picture since The Horse Whisperer.
