Earlier this week, my friend Caroline re-watched The Way We Were after many years away from the film, and was blown away by two things:
- Robert Redford the actor; and
- Robert Redford the amazingly good-looking human being.
See how Barbra Streisand is gazing up at him in the still from the movie? Insert any woman — or man of that ilk — and they will have the same look of stunned appreciation on their face.
Perfection does that to a person.
Redford’s acting, on the other hand, has not always received the same level of appreciation. But his upcoming movie, All is Lost, has generated Best Actor Oscar buzz at film festivals.
Take a look at the early trailer below.
Perhaps now that Redford is craggy instead of captivating, audiences are better able to focus on his performance.
I’ll be there!
