The Company You Keep” is Packed with Stars
Most films, it seems, rely on a couple A-list actors to hold it together. Supporting roles go to lesser known or unknown actors, probably for budget reasons. “The Company You Keep,” which stars and was directed by Robert Redford, has a cast that’s packed with a very impressive list of actors. Of course, Redford is an attraction unto himself. Anything with his name attached is usually gold. Maybe that’s because he surrounds himself with great talent. The Company You Keep boasts the talents of Julie Christie, whom Al Pacino called “the most poetic of all actresses.” Other cast members include veterans Nick Nolte, Susan Sarandon, Terrence Howard, Shia LaBeouf and Sam Elliott, whose unmistakable voice is used in lots of TV ads.
The flick is about a former member of the radical 70’s left-wing Weather Underground, played by Redford. He’s forced to go “underground” late in life with his daughter (Jackie Evancho) when his past is exposed by an intrepid reporter (LaBeouf). The film is a taut thriller that has already had two film festival debuts three days apart at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2012 Venice Film Festival.On April 1, “The Company You Keep” will have its theatric premiere in New York City. Afterwards, the cast and other folks associated with the film will be headed to an exclusive after-party. VIP Concierge has tickets for the film’s premiere and passes for the after-party. Movie premieres and after-parties are always electric, exciting affairs. If you’ve never been to a premiere, this would be a great one to check out. You’ll get to mingle with some great talent and catch the first theatrical showing of “The Company You Keep,” which makes you part of the film’s history. Be forewarned, however. Attending film premieres and their after-parties can be addictive to adrenaline junkies and those people who are always searching for a good time.
