Editorial Reviews

One of Hollywood’s most acclaimed filmmakers and actors, Robert Redford directs and stars as Jim Grant, a lawyer and single father revealed to be the fugitive leader of a 1970s radical antiwar protest group by intrepid reporter Ben Shepard (Shia LaBoeuf). Grant is forced to run and confront those he left behind decades ago to protect himself from the FBI. But as Shepard delves deeper into the story, he realizes that there is more to Grant than meets the eye. Featuring Julie Christie, Sam Elliot, Richard Jenkins, Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon, THE COMPANY YOU KEEP is packed with powerful suspense and brilliant performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better title: "The Price You Pay" May 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The criticism of this movie was originally started by the press's talking heads, with them only knowing the movie's topic and Redford's politics.

I am conservative who is organically suspicious of the press and it's motives, regardless of the side they come down upon. So I went to see it anyways, mostly because I wanted to see a particular actor's performance. I AM CONVINCED THE PRESS MISSED THE ENTIRE POINT OF THE MOVIE.

This film does not glorify terrorism. Quite the opposite. It shows how a person can cross the line from being an "activist" to being a felon/terrorist. It is sort of a retrospective of an activist's two lives - one he had to abandon once he crossed the line, the other, the second life he had to build afterward. In both cases, the focus of this movie is more on the private price he paid and simultaneously pushed off onto loved ones to avoid paying the public price for his acts.

The reader must understand that Sloan was guilty of some felony activities, but NOT the murder of the bank guard. His crimes, if caught, were worth some jail time, but not a life sentence for murder.

If a member of my family was considering becoming an activist, I would want them to see this movie. This would be their chance to understand that the actions they initiate could go awry and/or be twisted by others and spin out of control. This could easily leave them with consequences they would be forced to live with for the rest of their life, and JUST AS IMPORTANTLY, exact a greater price upon all their loved ones. People should carefully weigh the costs against the benefits.

I recommend this movie to all conservatives and all liberals and everyone in between who wanted their loved ones to make informed choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE OVER THE HILL GANG June 2, 2013
Format:DVD
Sharon Solarz (Susan Sarandon) turns herself into the FBI. She was a long time Weatherman (SDS) fugitive that was involved in bank robbery decades ago where a person was killed. This sets off a chain of events that ripples through the other fugitives of the group, particularly NY attorney Jim Grant (Robert Redford) who for some reason never made it to Putney. Jim has a daughter (kudos to Jackie Evancho) and goes on the lam. He becomes the attention of a national man hunt and is also pursued by Albany reporter Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf) who broke the story. Ben discovers that this saga has layers.

The characters are not only well developed, but they evolve within the film. There is a slightly layered mystery. We get clues about each layer prior to it being revealed. The film utilizes the 60's movement as background with the expected speeches, but also looks at the human side of things which are not as black and white. Mildly heart warming too.

The film has a few slow scenes, one that comes to mind is the jail interview of Solarz. But that should not deter any 60's child from enjoying a film about growing up and changing responsibilities.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity. Is it possible to elude the FBI for 40 years? Google: Leo Burt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic March 7, 2013
Format:DVD
The DVD is not yet available, but I saw the international screening of this movie in Venice back in September 2012. I did not get into the premier (I'm not a star or VIP), just a guy who loves to travel and wanted to see Jackie Evancho in her first major movie. I was able to get a ticket to the public screening. The movie will probably appeal to many, but mainly to the 60s generation and Jackie's fans. It is a well done portrayal of someone who did some bad things while protesting, went into hiding, changed his name and now his past has caught up to him. Jackie plays his daughter whom he will lose if he gets caught and blamed for a killing. He sends her to his brother's and then proceeds to try to find those from his past that might be able to help him. Jackie has about 12-15 minutes of on screen time in about 10 scenes. She, Robert and Shia are the only actors who are in scenes from the beginning of the movie until the very end. She does a wonderful and very believable job in her role as his daughter. I recommend this movie.

Format:DVD
As much as I respect Robert Redford as an actor, director and founder of the Sundance Institute, I just find him too hard to swallow as the father of an 11-year-old girl, especially the one played so precociously here by singing prodigy Jackie Evancho. This is one of several perceptible discrepancies that kept me from becoming fully engrossed in this fitfully suspenseful 2013 political thriller. At 76, he still looks great for his age and has a long legacy of starring in similarly themed movies like All The President's Men and Three Days of the Condor, but our suspension of belief is put to the test when we are expected to believe that his character, a small-town lawyer named Jim Grant, turns out to be Nick Sloan, a former 1970's radical who would have been a fearless political agitator in his forties. While I believe it's never too late for anyone to start their lives over, there is an air of vanity in Redford's self-selection since he is also the director. Fortunately in that role, he shows his unerring professionalism and keeps the pacing tight despite the convolutions brought on by Lem Dobbs' screenplay.

The story begins when a middle-aged woman is suddenly arrested at a suburban gas station. Her real identity is Sharon Solarz, a former anti-Vietnam War radical who has been hiding in Canada under an alias for all these years. She makes one of her allowable calls to Grant, who becomes a person of interest for an intrepid newspaper reporter looking for his big break.
