The Company You Keep

Rated R 125 minutes 2013

Robert Redford directed and stars in this boomer drama about the Weather Underground, impressive for its cast of aging talents (Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Richard Jenkins, Brendan Gleeson). The story hardly seems worth all the firepower: Redford is a former Weatherman, thought to have killed a guard during an early-80s bank robbery in Michigan, who goes on the run after his cover in Albany, New York, is blown by dogged reporter Shia LaBeouf. There's the usual handwringing about whether the ends justified the means, tarted up with a little Occupy Wall Street rhetoric; the high celebrity quotient tends to work against the drama, reminding us what a privileged generation this was and how its endless examination of itself in popular culture was part of that privilege. Terrence Howard, Stanley Tucci, and Anna Kendrick round out the cast.
