Gran Torino

18 December 2008 5:00 AM, PST | Pastemagazine.com | See recent PasteMagazine news »

Release Date: Dec. 12 (limited), Jan. 9

Director: Clint Eastwood

Writer: Nick Schenk (screenplay), Dave Johannson 7 Nick Schenk (story)


Cinematographer: Tom Stern

Starring: Clint Eastwood, Ahney Her, Bee Vang

Studio/Run Time: Warner Bros., 116 mins.

Since 2003 Director Clint Eastwood has had a late-career renaissance comparable perhaps only to Phillip Roth’s in literature. Both are recently concerned with how America has delivered—and failed to deliver—on the promise of equality and the American Dream, as well as issues of race and dealing with their own respective deaths. With Gran Torino, Eastwood puts out a brilliant work that balances all of these issues beautifully without coming to terms with any of them or giving easy answers.

5 November 2008 12:28 PM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

There's a new poster up for the Clint Eastwood helmed "Gran Torino" crime drama/thriller. It's good to see the tireless Eastwood in a leading role, in good shape and still dishing out some justice. Little known Nick Schenk ("I Shot Myself")writes the screenplay based on his story written with Dave Johannson, a first-timer who lands a big score. Also with Eastwood are Cory Hardrict ("He's Just Not That Into You", Geraldine Hughes ("Rocky Balboa"), John Caroll Lynch, Doua Moua and Dreama Walker. Warner Bros. Pictures sends this one to theatres on December 17th in limited locations and then expands on January 16th. »
