Film Series: The Sting

1973. USA. Dir: George Roy Hill. With Paul Newman, Robert Redford. 129 min.

The stars and director of BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID reteam, as Redford’s impetuous baby-face enlists the help of Newman’s veteran charmer to tag a gangster for an elaborate revenge grift. The precisely convoluted plot keeps you guessing while the ensemble cast keeps you laughing throughout this lively throwback to the Thirties, a winner of seven Academy Awards.

Tonight, September 5th. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
