Robert Redford bows out in fine form in this entertaining “mostly true” biopic of “gentleman bank robber” Forrest Tucker, who was robbing banks well into his 70’s, and always with utmost politeness and charm. It’s a fitting tribute to the veteran actor, who recently announced his retirement, with grainy 16mm cinematography referencing his Sundance heyday and some sizzling chemistry with Sissy Spacek - it’s astounding to think that this is the first time they have ever worked together.
