The Company You Keep

The sheer amount of acting prowess in The Company You Keep is staggering. It’s a veritable Expendables of adult drama, complete with the sure hand of Robert Redford on the director’s wheel (which may or may not be a thing I just made up). The story focuses on a young journalist (Shia LaBeouf) who exposes a former Weather Underground member (Redford) who has to go on the run from the law again. Beyond the director and Lem Dobbs (Dark CityThe Limey) pulling screenwriting duty, the lineup includes:

Sam Elliot, Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Brendan Gleeson, Brit Marling, Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick, Nick Nolte, Stanley Tucci and Chris Cooper among others. Obviously they financed the film by melting down the award statues of the cast.

Plus, the promise of the project seems fulfilled by a compelling trailer. Check it out for yourself:

The Company You Keep is in theaters April 5th, and is almost definitely going to make a great double feature with Sneakers.
