There's enough plot to stuff a miniseries, but Redford never loses sight of the human drama. Martyrdom is not conferred, nor is reinvention equated with redemption. Drawing skillfully on a first-rate cast, Redford builds a riveting, resonant political thriller that values the complexity of its characters and the intelligence of its audience. show more
The story is rooted in a political past that never comes to life, and its structure is so cockeyed that we don't even get to see Nick's reaction to a climactic surprise that takes place off-screen. The film was shot by an excellent cinematographer, Adriano Goldman, though you'd never know it from the lighting, which is as flat as the writing. show more
Directed in steady fashion by Redford, The Company You Keep manages to keep its multiple strands of plot - and the people caught in them - from collapsing in a jumble of confusion. This alone, given the whirl of personal and political history going on, is an accomplishment. show more
I\'m SURE Obama would love this movie.. Enough said..
Liked the story just thought the actors were too old they used. Everything happened 30 yrs. ago when they were in college and these actors were way over that. They also had Robert Redford who is now 77 with an 11 year old daughter, come on! Not realistic......
This movie will bore most people because someone isnt getting shot or racing through city streets at 100mph. Its too deep for most. Skip it and get back to your twittering about your teeny lives and utter insignificance. Its more you!
