Want a good movie to keep you entertained and enthralled on a Saturday night?

Look no further, The Company You Keep is a compelling tale.

Featuring Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Stanley Tucci and Shia LaBeouf, there is star power everywhere and they have a great script to work with.

Sharon Solarz (Sarandon) begins to bring down a house of cards when she is arrested 30 years after being part of an anti-Vietnam War terror group.

Her arrest sparks new FBI interest in tracking down the other members of the group, which set off bombs and robbed a bank in its heyday.

It also piques the interest of young newspaper reporter Ben Shepard (LaBeouf).

His digging uncovers the existence of local lawyer Jim Grant (Redford), who may be something other than he seems.

Shepard is not prepared to let this rest and he pursues and uncovers the truth about Grant and slowly learns about the shadowy group and how it managed to disappear from sight all those years ago.

Grant goes on the run from Shepard and the FBI because he wants to clear his name. He is wanted for being party to the murder of a security guard during the botched bank robbery. But with a young daughter to care for, it is time to clear his name.

To manage that he must delve into his past and locate his former colleagues who have the power to help him. And he must do it before the FBI find him.
