Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.
Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest's commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession. Like Redford, Spacek is still radiant onscreen, and these two legends - who, unbelievably, have never appeared together in a film before - have wonderful chemistry. Almost 50 years after Robert Redford rode into cinematic history with Paul Newman as ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’, he has announced that this will be his final film as an actor.

Set in contemporary Chicago, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands.
We follow the four women (Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki. Cynthia Erivo) who just lost their husbands – men who, it is revealed in a thrilling opening sequence, were thieves who stole from those even worse than themselves. To repay this debt, the women – plus an outsider, who comes in after a very sly third-act twist – must pool their resources and finish the job their husbands couldn't. Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) helms this heist film masked on top of a treasure trove of ideas about class, race, history and who has the power to rise above their station. The film was chosen to open the recent London Film Festival.
