DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - While featuring an all-star cast of notable actors young and old, the leads in this fairly slow-moving thriller are Robert Redford and Shia LaBeouf. Fans of some of the more briefly seen actors, such as Susan Sarandon, Anna Kendrick, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, and Terrence Howard may be disappointed by their limited screen time. Language and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids, who would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Good "...a low-key thriller that takes on big ideas, serious issues and complex ethical decisions. Though it makes a few missteps, it's marked by top-notch performances by a terrific ensemble cast, headed by Redford."

NY Post Full Review
Average And the disappointing "The Company You Keep'' consistently stretches credulity way past the breaking point in its depiction of journalism, police procedure and political activism.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Jim Grant (Robert Redford) is a public interest lawyer and single father raising his daughter in the tranquil suburbs of Albany, New York. Grant's world 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 knows the significance of the national news story he has exposed and, for a journalist, this is an opportunity of a lifetime. Hell-bent on making a name for himself, he is willing to stop at nothing to capitalize on it. He digs deep into Grant's past. Despite warnings from his editor and threats from the FBI, Shepard relentlessly tracks Grant across the country.

As Grant reopens old wounds and reconnects with former members of his antiwar group, the Weather Underground, Shepard realizes something about this man is just not adding up. With the FBI closing in, Shepard uncovers the shocking secrets Grant has been keeping for the past three decades. As Grant and Shepard come face to face in the wilderness of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, they each must come to terms with who they really are.
