The Company You KeepRobert Redford directs and stars in this drama about a former Weather Underground activist who goes on the run after fortysomething years when a journalist uncovers his identity. The screen vet-heavy cast includes Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Terrence Howard, Stanley Tucci, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brendan Gleeson, Brit Marling, Sam Elliot and Shia LaBeouf. Redford might not be the most realistic choice to play a hippie terrorist, and the script (based on the novel by Neil Gordon) has enough plot strands to fill an IFC mini-series. Still it's a compelling piece of political drama from Hollywood's peacenik past. 121 minutes R.
Times and listings are for Thursday 8/21 through Wednesday 8/27
