Here’s the compelling new trailer for Robert Redford’s ‘The Company You Keep.’
The Company You Keep is about the American terrorist group The Weather Underground. You may remember them from the Obama 2008 presidential run. Sarah Palin infamously, or if you’re a red blooded conservative, Famously said, Mr. Obama, “..was palling around with tourists.” She was of course talking about former Weather Underground Member Bill Ayers.
The Company You Keep sensationalizes the group, as if these guys and gals were still on the run and inside our country no less and in hiding. When the fact is, Bill Ayers can probably be found in the city of Chicago in less then 48 hours by a novice citizen, and within ten to fifteen minutes by the CIA or FBI.
Still, putting the above facts to rest and looking at The Company You Keep in the light of dramatic interpretation, it looks great. I love films about investigative journalists and ideological ideals. My guess, Redford’s character Jim Grant, has his reasons for what he did years ago. My second guess, Shia LaBeouf’s character will generally find his ideological reasonings fair and understandable and this will cause him to take a side. In other words, The Company You Keep is the classic, investigative journalist story where the original antagonist, becomes the protagonist in the journalist eyes because it becomes more than a story — It becomes personal.
Journalism 101, cover the news objectively and never make it personal, or you’ll be looked at like your Sean Hannity or Chris Matthews, not real journalist anymore, but pundits arguing for their own side.
The Company You Keep is a thriller centered on a former Weather Underground activist who goes on the run from a journalist who has discovered his identity.
The Company You Keep was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. There is no release date for this film. It will premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th, 2012.
