Gran Torino

USA 2008

Seen 6 January 2009

This tour de force from Clint Eastwood just dazzles. Mr. Eastwood himself has given a gem of a performance as the leading character in this story on feeling at peace, relationships and living life with honour.

The subject matter is current – the prevalent generation gap in families, peer pressure, guilt over past deeds and an independent spirit. All these against a backdrop of a minority group in the American Midwest with their close knit community. The main character unwittingly becomes involved and we get to see high drama as well as emotional highs along the way.

Heart warming to say the least.
