About the Movie
Jim Grant (Robert Redford) is a civil rights lawyer and single father raising his daughter in the tranquil suburbs of Albany, New York. His world is turned upside down, when a brash young reporter named Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf), exposes Grant's true identity as a former 1970s antiwar radical fugitive wanted for murder. After living for more than 30 years underground as a lawyer, Grant must now go on the run. He is the center of a nationwide manhunt and with the FBI in hot pursuit, he sets off on a cross-country journey to track down the one person that can clear his name.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This film, with its prickly characters and complicated plot, rips along with continuous tension and power.
Fresh: It's best enjoyed as an actors' showcase.
Rotten: Nearly every scene had me asking questions about what just transpired when I should have been absorbing what was happening next.
Rotten: The high celebrity quotient tends to work against the drama, reminding us what a privileged generation this was and how its endless examination of itself in popular culture was part of that privilege.
Redford is a resounding success...
...with the help of a fine cast: some old some new. If you played a role in the 70's this is a movie for you. If you want to understand the 70's this movie is for you. If you want to see outstanding actors, then this my is for you.
Better than expected
Once you get over that Robert Redford who is 75+ has a 12 year old daughter, and is "on the run", its an excellent movie.
