Sony Classics has released a new trailer for Robert Redford's latest film, The Company You Keep (2012), starring Robert Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Terrence Howard, Nick Nolte, and Susan Sarandon. The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on April 5th.
The Company You Keep is based on Neil Gordon's 2003 novel and produced by Bill Holderman (The Conspirator), Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker), and Robert Redford. It was lensed by Brazilian cinematographer and director Adriano Goldman (Sin Nombre, City of Men).
When a former member of the radical protest/terrorist organisation the Weather Underground (Susan Sarandon) turns herself in to the FBI, Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf), an aggressive young journalist, starts searching around for leads on the other members.
Before long Ben uncovers Jim Grant (Robert Redford) a former Weatherman and a fugitive wanted for murder. After living for more than thirty years under an assumed identity as a civil rights lawyer and single father in New York, he must now go on the run.
With the FBI in hot pursuit and Shepard getting closer to discovering his secret, Grant sets off on a cross-country journey to track down the one person that can clear his name and allow him to go home to his daughter.
