Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep” comes to theaters in a few weeks and, for those curious to check this film out, a whopping eight clips have landed online. The first thing that will pop out at you upon viewing the clips is how ridiculously stacked this cast is. Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Brendan Gleeson, Brit Marling, Anna Kendrick, Nick Nolte and Terrence Howard are all featured in the eight clips. If that’s not enough, how about some great, seasoned character actors like Sam Elliott, Stephen Root, Stanley Tucci, and Chris Cooper? Holy mackerel.

The Company You Keep, Shia LaBeouf, Brit Marling
Five years after Robert Redford’s disappointing anti-war drama "Lions for Lambs" the 76-year-old actor, director and Sundance mogul is back in similar territory. He directs and stars in the forthcoming "The Company You Keep" which tells the story of Jim Grant, a public interest lawyer and single father living in Albany, New York. Shia LaBoeuf’s brash reporter exposes Grant as a fugitive, wanted for a murder he allegedly committed in his days as an anti-war radical. Grant is forced to go on the run and find the person who might be able to clear his name.

While reality television has long been forced into quotations because of its manufactured truths, we as an audience expect more legitimacy from the game show format. Robert Redford's 1994 historical drama “Quiz Show” took this assumption and dismantled it through a focus on one pivotal TV program -- “Twenty One” -- and now the real-life episode where the whole scandal began is available for viewing.

What are moral and ethical lines of digging into someone's past, particularly someone who might have been affiliated with a horrible action, but all in the name of the greater good? These seem to be the thematic tangles that Robert Redford will look to uncover in his latest directorial effort, "The Company You Keep." And a brand new trailer has arrived showing off a mix of ideals and thrills coming for you this spring.

The Sundance Film Festival is now underway, which means the next week or so is going to be a blitzkrieg of announcements, buzz, hype and more from the films showing their stuff up in Park City. But the first juicy nugget of news doesn't come from any of the movies, but from the festival's founder Robert Redford, and it's about one of his forthcoming pictures from a Sundance alum.

While 1980's Oscar-winning directorial debut "Ordinary People" remains a potent and emotional picture, and 1994's "Quiz Show" is a rare and rich drama, Robert Redford's output behind the camera over the last decade or so can be characterised mostly by two words -- 'sleep aid.' None of "The Legend of Bagger Vance," "Lions for Lambs" or "The Conspirator" had much of anything interesting to them, bar some solid, if unexceptional performances.

TIFF Review: Robert Redford's 'The Company You Keep' Is An Unconvincing Bit Of Agitprop

The third film in Robert Redford’s recent series of stillborn, bleeding heart dramas, "The Company You Keep" is a busy but inert civic-minded thriller. As a director, Redford has yet to break his recent habit of using hackneyed dialogue to talk down to his audience with Aaron Sorkin-esque dialogue that authoritatively spells out his talking points. But unlike "Lions for Lambs," an impressively incensed civics lesson that thinks it’s a drama, "The Company You Keep" is too cool of a film to be admired for its creator’s chutzpah alone. In fact, it’s probably the most frustrating of Redford’s recent films because it has a pseudo-contemplative atmosphere to it, one that superficially begs viewers to reflect upon how far they would go for their convictions. Political apathy is the real enemy in "The Company You Keep," making it pitiably ironic that Redford’s latest is as unmoving as it is.

It's interesting to see how films rise or fall during the fall festival season. As critics and industry put together their schedules, a variety of factors determine which movies they'll see and which they'll pass on for now, perhaps to wait for another day. And you can bet when Sony Pictures Classics announced they had acquired Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" at the end of last week, it suddenly shot up the prirority list for press. And now, this pretty rivieting new trailer will only stoke that anticipation further.

Images from that big Toronto announcement this morning keep coming, and two adult-minded thrillers from stars-turned-directors are next up. We had the first look at Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" yesterday, with images of Redford (who plays the lead role, a '60s radical on the run), Shia LaBeouf (the journalist pursuing him) and Brit Marling (Redford's daughter). Now a new picture of Redford, this time being pursued at night, has arrived on the TIFF website along with the first look of Susan Sarandon in the film. The film is getting a gala premiere but not a world premiere, suggesting heavily that it's likely to be bowing at Venice, as rumored, a week or two beforehand -- that news should be confirmed on Thursday.

As we barrel towards the fall festival season, we're going to be seeing images and clips from movies that don't feature superheroes or explosions, which frankly, is kind of a relief. Earlier today, we got a healthy six minutes from Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina," and now, the first official pics from Robert Redford's latest directorial effort (which he also stars in) "The Company You Keep" have dropped as well.
