An adaptation of the Neil Gordon novel “The Company You Keep.”
When Jason Sinai, one of the last Vietnam-era fugitives still wanted on murder charges for a robbery gone wrong in 1974, encounters a young newspaper reporter in search of a story, he must abandon years of safe underground life for the dangerous life of the road — traveling across American and deep into his past. Set against the rise and fall of the radical anti-war group the Weather Underground, “The Company You Keep” is a sweeping American saga about sacrifice, the ecstatic righteousness of youth, and the tension between political ideals and family loyalties. It is a vidid re-creation of lives lived underground — of battle-scarred veterans, ideologues, profiteers, criminals and bystanders.
