There are several "Easter egg" references to Robert Redford's earlier films, including the opening legend, which is nearly identical to the one that opens "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" ("Not that it matters, but most of what follows is true") and the scene between Redford and Casey Affleck, where Affleck runs a finger over the side of his nose, which was the signal in "The Sting" between the con men that they were fellow-travelers.

Entertaining heart-warming unusual story with charismatic Redford and Spacek.
This story, based on real-life bank robber Forrest Tucker, is so unlikely and unusual, the protagonist deserves an iconic movie superstar to play him. The inimitable Robert Redford does the role full justice, and even in his weather-beaten elder years, his charismatic and handsome face still seems swoon-worthy as ever to me I loved the romantic chemistry between Redford and Sissy Spacek. Even though the main plot is about cops and robbers (or robber and cops), this movie also successfully delivers a touching love story subplot. I enjoyed the way the anti-hero's backstory unfolds little by little; the viewer learns his identity from the point of view of the detective who is trying to catch him. All in all -- entertaining, heartwarming and highly recommended..
