#Movie #Review: The Company You Keep (2012)

the-company-you-keep-2012In this drama, Robert Redford is an ex-Weather Underground activist on the run from the FBI.  This movie seems like a nostalgic tribute to American radicals from the 1970s. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I found the film interesting rather than engrossing, as the dramatic aspects appeared a little flat.  Also, and I say this with utmost respect to Robert Redford, he seemed a little old for the role. Shia LaBeouf’s pushy reporter is unbelievably unsympathetic and irritating, but Julie Christie’s hard, unbowed, anarchistic and inappropriately named Mimi is compelling.
