Robert Redford's new film sees the Hollywood liberal play a craggy radical, hiding away from a criminally subversive past under an assumed name. Once the FBI rumbles him, the agents on his trail spend some time comparing the image of his lined face to that of his much younger, 1970s, moustachioed self.
Cinema audiences across the world have travelled down that same long, ageing trail with Redford too, watching as his luminous youth in the role of Bubber in the 1966 film The Chase was gradually replaced, first by the poised cynicism of The Candidate and then by the stately leading man in Out of Africa or the worn-out sleaze of his Indecent Proposal to Demi Moore. Yet, as a man, Redford's radical zeal remains undimmed.

Watergate Remembered in Discovery Channel Documentary 'Celebrating' the 40th Anniversary of the Watergate Scandal The Washington Post and American journalistic ethics in general may be only a shadow of what they once were -- and most of the U.S. press was never really all that great or even borderline trustworthy to begin with -- but Robert Redford remains the same, glimpsed here with Watergate investigators Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, and former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, shot (not literally) by Annie Leibovitz. Pictured above: Redford with Bernstein, Bradlee, and Woodward in the iconic Washington Post newsroom. The four veterans got together to promote the Discovery Channel doc All the President’s Men Revisited, about the 40th anniversary of the Watergate scandal that destroyed the Nixon presidency. With Redford as one of its executive producers, the documentary airs this month. Redford played Woodward opposite Dustin Hoffman's Bernstein in »

Alright, now that all of that Man of Steel business is over with, we can get to the real news. That guilty pleasure news. Many of you will (secretly) be excited to hear that Britney Spears will release her new song “Ooh La La” with The Smurfs 2, according to Sony.
Britney Spears told Sony that she wanted to surprise her kids with a song in the film. Spears said:

Directors are the people most responsible for the quality of a film, and director with a good track record automatically makes a movie more intriguing. It sometimes takes a film director several attempts before he/she can hit on a formula that works best for them, while some directors come out of the gate already fully formed.
The following ten directors have already shown that they have directing talent of the highest caliber but either have only directed a few movies or have only recently come to the attention of moviegoers. These directors represent the next wave for movies and in the next few years they should take their place as some of the most prominent filmmakers working in movies today.
The directors were ranked both by the quality of their films so far as well as on their potential to make future great films.

Robert Redford delivers one last lecture on '60s idealism and passes another baton to Shia Labeouf in "The Company You Keep," an engrossing thriller about the last anti-Vietnam War radicals still underground.
Redford, along with fellow Oscar winners Susan Sarandon, Chris Cooper and Julie Christie, and the cream of the cinema's current crop of character actors -- Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Nick Nolte, Stanley Tucci and Richard Jenkins -- make this "No Country for Old Radicals" a feast of performance, with many of those illustrious stars sharing scenes with Labeouf, who plays an obsessed newspaper reporter on their trail.
And in this movie, the kid holds his own.
Sarandon plays a former member of "The Struggle" who has laid low for decades, raising kids and harboring guilt. She wants to turn herself in for her part in a bank robbery that got a guard killed some "30 years ago." But »
Australian brothers Damien and Jason Oliver (Stephen Curry and Jodi Gordon) vow to honour the memory of their jockey father (who died in a tragic fall) by rising to the top... and competing in the Melbourne Cup. Under the eye of Irish trainer Dermot Weld (Brendan Gleeson), Damien is ready to ride his trusty steed Media Puzzle against the best, including Dubai's Sheikh Mohammed's favourite. »
Robert Redford is an impeccably controlled filmmaker who takes his art seriously. While none of his films have been as accessibly commercial as "Ordinary People," which won him the directing Oscar, this movie is Redford's best since "Quiz Show." A brainy thriller in the Sydney Pollack mode, "The Company You Keep" benefits from the imposed rigors of low-budget filmmaking. Redford developed the film for nine years for himself to direct and star in, and shot it in 40 days. The script by Lem Dobbs is a tight with plenty of juicy dialogue for a raft of attractive older actors, from Redford, Julie Christie and Sam Elliott to the always-super Chris Cooper, Nick Nolte, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Richard Jenkins and Brendan Gleeson. Younger cast members Shia Labeouf, Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick and Brit Marling also carry their weight. Smarter-than-your-average movie, "The Company You Keep" is edge-of-your-seat watchable in its first two-thirds »

In the new film directed by and starring Robert Redford, The Company You Keep, lawyer and single father Jim Grant (Redford) is living a quiet life in the suburbs when a housewife (Susan Sarandon) is arrested and revealed as part of a 1970’s radical gang, known as the Weather Underground. Young and thirsty reporter Ben Shepard (Shia Labeouf) digs into her history and uncovers Grant’s secret- that he is in fact another member of the gang in hiding. Grant goes on the run across the country- closely followed by the FBI and a truth-hungry Shepard- to try and clear his name and win back his daughter. Along the way, both men discover things they can’t outrun about the past and about themselves. The film also stars Julie Christie, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Terrence Howard, Stanley Tucci, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Sam Elliot, Brendan Gleeson, Stephen Root and Jacqueline Evancho. »

Los Angeles — Robert Redford does his most compelling work in some time as both actor and director in "The Company You Keep," a tense yet admirably restrained thriller about a fugitive forced out of hiding after 30 years to prove his innocence. Adapted with clarity and intelligence by Lem Dobbs from Neil Gordon's novel, and lent distinguishing heft by its roster of screen veterans, this gripping drama provides an absorbing reflection on the courage and cost of dissent.
Recalling aspects of Sidney Lumet's poignant "Running on Empty" from 1988, but with a more subdued emotional palette, the film opens with vintage-style news footage detailing charges against members of radical antiwar group the Weather Underground in the early 1970s for plotting to blow up buildings in multiple U.S. cities. A second report follows, attributing responsibility to the same group for a Michigan bank robbery during which a security guard was killed. »
Title: The Company You Keep Director: Robert Redford Starring: Robert Redford, Shia Labeouf, Brendan Gleeson, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Nick Nolte, Terrence Howard, Susan Sarandon, Anna Kendrick, Richard Jenkins, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper, Stephen Root “The Company You Keep,” Robert Redford’s ninth film as a director, is about secrets, principles and the melting value of absolutes. In dramatizing the present-day, assumed-identity circumstances of a group of former anti-Vietnam War radicals who in real life in the 1960s and ’70s advocated the overthrow of the United States government, it offers up a decidedly American story of graying moral certitude to match graying temples. If that sounds interesting, in a [ Read More ]

Robert Redford’s latest directorial effort, The Company You Keep, features a number of well-known character actors such as Sam Elliot, Chris Cooper, Richard Jenkins, Brendan Gleeson and Stanley Tucci. It also has in its cast some of the hottest young actors of today like Shia LeBeouf, Anna Kendrick and Brit Marling.
It even has some of the finest actresses of our generation like Susan Sarandon and the great Julie Christie. But when it came time for The Company You Keep to have its press conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, only one of the actors from the film came to talk about it, and that was Nick Nolte.
In the movie Nolte plays Donal Fitzgerald, an old friend of Jim Grant (played by Redford) who was once a member of anti-Vietnam War militant group known as The Weather Underground. Donal these days is now the owner of a lumber yard, »

At 76 years old, Sundance founder, legendary actor and filmmaker, and cinematic icon Robert Redford doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Not only has he booked a role in the blockbuster "Captain America: Winter Soldier," he's got "A Walk In The Woods" gearing up to shoot this fall with Richard Linklater, but coming first is "The Company You Keep." Featuring an unbelievable ensemble and some politically charged material, this could be a nice intelligent diversion this spring movie season. Directed by and starring Redford alongside (very deep breath) Shia Labeouf, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper and Susan Sarandon, the film tells the story of a former member of the Weather Underground who is forced to go on the run when a plucky young journalist threatens to expose his criminal past. In addition to the »
