Sony Pictures Classics has released another trailer for Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep. The film tells the story of a reporter who is in pursuit of a fugitive and stumbles upon something much bigger. The topic centres around the 1960s Weather Underground movement aimed to overthrow the US government.
The cast features quite a number of Hollywood A-listers, albeit that some of them came out of semi-retirement, and include the likes of Robert Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte and Chris Cooper
“Jim Grant (Robert Redford) is a widowed single father and attorney living in Albany. What none of his friends or clients know is that Jim was once a member of the activist/terrorist organization the WeatherUnderground. Wanted for robbery and the murder of a security guard, Jim has been in hiding for more than thirty years. When another former Weatherman (Susan Sarandon) turns herself in to the FBI, Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf), an aggressive young journalist, starts sniffing around for leads. He gradually finds his way to Jim, not suspecting that this seemingly upright citizen is himself a former militant activist. Concerned that Ben will eventually discover his true identity, Jim flees, though a safe harbour may prove difficult to find.”
