If you're going to pick someone to play a man who moves through the world with grace, style and a slight, wry smile, you could hardly do better than Robert Redford.Now Redford is 82, an Oscar-winning director and an elder statesman of American cinema.He's said "The Old Man & The Gun," in which he plays historic bank robber Forrest Tucker, is likely his last acting role. That last quotation is from David Grann's noted 2003 New Yorker piece on Tucker upon which writer-director David Lowery's "The Old Man & The Gun" is based.One of the more memorable moments comes late in the film, when Jewel visits Tucker in prison.Were it not for Redford, the film would be well, why even ask, because Redford is the point. He chose the role, optioned the New Yorker article, chose the director.
