Free Screening: The Company You Keep
Co-Presented by the New York Times Film Club
Robert Redford stars as Albany defense attorney Jim Grant who is trying to keep career and life from falling apart as he deals with the recent aftermath of his wife’s death. Laboring to raise her pre-teen daughter and maintain personal/professional equilibrium, Grant suddenly finds himself on the run from the law. Shia LaBeouf costars as Ben Shepard, the hard-working reporter whose investigation of a story about the arrest of a long-hidden 1960s radical sets into motion the chaos that overtakes Grant’s existence. Redford directs Lem Dobbs’s adaptation of Neil Gordon’s novel. Dobbs gives The Company You Keep the feel of an ensemble piece, with an all-star series of entrances and exits that include Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Elliott, Stanley Tucci, and Richard Jenkins.
Bing Theater | Followed by a Q&A with cast member Nick Nolte and producer Bill Holderman.
