The Company You Keep

It's almost time for the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival to kick-off next month, and between now and then we'll see plenty of promotional materials for the films making their debut in Canada. Today brings one of the more exciting bits in the form of the first trailer for The Company You Keep, the adaptation of Neil Gordon's novel of the same name from director Robert Redford. The political thriller follows a young journalist (Shia LaBeouf) who stumbles upon the story of his career when he uncovers the identity of a wanted ex-radical activist (Redford) who has been underground for five decades. This looks like a great political thriller in the same vein as All the President's Men with a phenomenal ensemble cast. Watch it!

Here's the first trailer for Robert Redford's The Company You Keep, unveiled via TIFF:

Jim Grant (Robert Redford), a civil rights lawyer and single father must go on the run when a brash young reporter (Shia LaBeouf), exposes his true identity as a former 1970's radical fugitive wanted for murder.  Sparking a nationwide manhunt, Grant sets off on a cross-country journey to clear his name. The Company You Keep is directed by Robert Redford from a script by Lem Dobbs (Haywire, The Limey) based on Neil Gordon's novel of the same name. Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper, Anna Kendrick, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Elliott, Terrence Howard and more star in the film expected to theaters sometime in 2013.

This has nothing to do w/ the actual Weather Underground. They all came clean recently, but because the FBI had done illegal wiretapping ALL cases were thrown out of court.

Is this like the Bourne Identity but with Hippies?

Looks like state of play but, less intriging.
