The world of Jim Grant (director Robert Redford), a public interest lawyer and single father raising his daughter in the tranquil suburbs of Albany, New York, is turned upside down when a brash young reporter named Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf) exposes his true identity as a former 1970s antiwar radical fugitive wanted for murder. After living for more than 30 years underground, Grant must now go on the run. 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. Shepard, knowing this to be the opportunity of a lifetime for a journalist, is willing to stop at nothing to capitalize on it. As Grant reopens old wounds and reconnects with former members of his antiwar group, the Weather Underground, Shepard uncovers the shocking secrets Grant has been keeping for the past three decades. Based on the novel by Neil Gordon, this cat-and-mouse thriller’s all-star cast includes Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon.
