A new trailer has been released for the upcoming film, "The Company You Keep". The film stars Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon and Shia LaBeouf. Redford produced and directed the film.
The story centers on recent widower and single father, Jim Grant, a former Weather Underground anti-Vietnam War militant, wanted for a bank robbery and murder, who hid from the FBI for over thirty years, posing as an Albany attorney. He becomes a fugitive when his true identity is exposed by Ben Shepard, an aggressive young reporter. Grant must find his ex-lover, Mimi, the one person who can clear his name, before the FBI catches him. Otherwise, he will lose everything, including his 11-year-old daughter Isabel. While Ben struggles with ethical issues as a journalist, Jim and his old friends from the Weather Underground must live with the consequences of their radical past.
Redford plays Grant, the reporter is Shia LaBeouf (Ben), and Susan Sarandon and Julie Christie (Mimi) play former Weather Underground members. Terrence Howard and Anna Kendrick play the FBI agents on the case, and Brendan Gleeson is the retired Michigan Chief of Police who had first investigated the bank robbery. Stanley Tucci and Nick Nolte round out the star filled cast. The film is an adaptation of the Neil Gordon novel "The Company You Keep". It screened at both the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival. The film is set to hit limited theaters in the United States on April 5th.
