Movies: The Company You Keep

Oh those good old times. In the early 70s of the last century there was in the U.S. a terrorist group who robed banks and didn´t mind to kill innocent people (Weather Underground). Hollywood made a nostalgic buddy movie about this issue: "The Company you keep" (imdb).

The flick is set in the present. The former terrorists are now well established persons, good doers and enjoying their life. But they are still bothered by the ongoing hunt by the FBI which induces them to rekindle old connections. The film doesn´t care much about the topic terrorism, it is more interested in old friendship and family connections.

A flock of established and wealthy Hollywood personnel like Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie, Nick Nolte and Stanley Tucci  bothered to leave their multimillion dollar estates and mansions to participate in this production. Even if you are very rich and a bit on the left side, you could still use some extra money.

Maybe the film could have the title "The money you keep".
