You can't escape the past


The Company You Keep
In a plotline which recalls Redford's earlier vehicle Three Days of the Condor, he plays an ageing activist now living under cover and effectively hiding from the authorities. His partner from his youth decides to confess to a murder from 30 years ago, and one thing leads to another, resulting in his identity being exposed. He has no option but to go on the run to track down the only woman who can still clear his name.

T. Durgin quote iconThe Company You Keep is an interesting snapshot of those who lived in the shadow of the Greatest Generation, whose youth was spent trying to change the world, and whose middle and now old age have been spent dealing with the triumphs and failures of their idealism.
