In "The Old Man and the Gun," the elderly bank robber Forrest Tucker, played by Robert Redford, walks up to a bank teller, smiles, says a few words in a kindly manner, and collects a heap of money.Redford has said the movie, set for release Sept. 28, will be his final one as an actor.That Redford might be hanging it up has the unmistakable feel of an era passing.It was through the Sundance Institute, the nonprofit he founded in 1981 for independent filmmaking that puts on the Sundance Film Festival, that Redford met Lowery, the 37-year-old director.Lowery then wrote a script that became "The Old Man and the Gun". It wasn't until shortly before shooting that his phone lit up after Redford, in an interview, suggested this might be his last movie. Redford is again on the other side of the law.Redford has kind words for them all but especially for Affleck.Redford still has hopes of directing one or two more films, but he likes the idea of going out as an actor with an upbeat movie.Redford still loves talking about the film, like the light-and-dark interplay by cinematographer Gordon Willis.
