Sony Pictures Classics has quite a few irons in the fire this season, as usual. There is the Cannes trio of Michael Haneke's "Amour," Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone" and Pablo Larraín's "No." There is the recently acquired "At Any Price" from Ramin Bahrani. There are Sundance hits "Smashed," from James Ponsoldt, and "West of Memphis," from Amy Berg. And now, there is Robert Redford.
The movie star/director's latest, "The Company You Keep," is part of the slate of films announced for Toronto and Venice. It features a spectacular cast, including Redford, Shia LeBeouf, Julie Christie, Brendon Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Susan Sarandon and Brit Marling. With Sony Classics' just-announced acquisition of the title, I wonder if we might see the film pop up at Telluride first? They always come to Colorado with plenty to show.
