Writer/director David Lowery (A Ghost Story, Pete’s Dragon) tells this tale based on the real story of Forrest Tucker, a career criminal but one with a special skill for escaping any cell they put him in, here played by Robert Redford. The story follows him, his new love interest (Sissy Spacek), the gang he puts together (Danny Glover and Tom Waits) and the cop who finds a new lease on life through his pursuit of him (Casey Affleck). Listen to Ben and Lara suss out all the feels they got watching it.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
