Gran Torino

Gran Torino ★★★★

Mr. Eastwood plays a grizzled Korean war vet dealing with the loss of his wife. When one of his young asian neighbours is forced to (attempt to) steal his immaculate Gran Torino car, he develops a relationship with the boy and his family.

If I was King of Hollywood, all Clint Eastwood films that aren't set in the Wild West would have an orangutan called Clyde. This one doesn't, but it certainly didn't suffer from it. It's a heart-warming yet sometimes gruesome tale of acceptance and tolerance. Plus it's Clint - you know it isn't gonna be a stinker.
