David Lowery follows up A Ghost Story with the true story of a gentlemanly criminal bought to life by the masterful Robert Redford.

Follow Forrest Tucker (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 (Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest's commitment to his craft, and a woman (Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.

Did You Know? This may be Redford's final screen role before he retires from acting. In an interview he gave during the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, he talked about this comedic film being a good note to end on, since the actor wanted his "last acting job to be fun."
