    The Company You Keep (2013)

    The best movie I've seen all year! An intelligent script that doesn't require 3D goggles or CGI gimmicks to tell its engaging tale. I remember the Weather Underground and even had a friend who was active in the organization; I can vouch for the authenticity of its depiction, and the premise of this film as it reveals those former members decades later. Although it's based on a novel, this film could easily be based on fact. The cast is splendid (although Shia LeBeouf has terrible diction that can't always be understood). Robert Redford, as Director, relies (to everyone's advantage) on the experience of making "All The President's Men" to pace the tension. What a joy to see Julie Christie and Susan Sarandon again!
