The Company You Keep is a 2012 political action thriller starring Robert Redford (Spy Game, The Clearing) and Shia LaBeouf (Disturbia, Transformers). Also produced and directed by Robert Redford with a phenomonal script written by Lem Dobbs based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Neil Gordon.
The story centers on recent widower and single father, Jim Grant, a former Weather Underground anti-Vietnam War militant wanted for a bank robbery and murder, who hid from the FBI for over thirty years posing as an Albany attorney. When his true identity is exposed by Ben Shepard, an aggressive young reporter, Grant becomes a fugitive. Grant must find his ex-lover, Mimi, the one person who can clear his name, before the FBI catches him. If he does not, he will lose everything, including his 11-year-old daughter Isabel. While Ben struggles with ethical issues as a journalist, Jim and his old friends from the Weather Underground must live with the consequences of their radical past.
Rated (NR) 100 minutes
Koch is a 2012 documentary film directed by Neil Barsky, about former New York City Mayor Ed Koch.
Former Mayor Ed Koch is the quintessential New Yorker. Still ferocious, charismatic, and hilariously blunt, the now 88-year-old Koch ruled New York from 1978 to 1989—a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime. First-time filmmaker (and former Wall Street Journal reporter) Neil Barsky has crafted a revealing portrait of this intensely private man, his legacy as a political titan, and the town he helped transform. His three terms included a fiercely competitive 1977 election; the burgeoning AIDS epidemic; landmark housing initiatives; and an irreparable municipal corruption scandal.Through candid interviews and rare archival footage, Koch thrillingly chronicles the personal and political toll of running the world’s most wondrous city.
