Synopsis / Plot
As much an eccentric character study as a road movie, Michael Cimino's directorial debut follows the adventures of a quartet of misfits in their life of crime. Retired thief Thunderbolt (Clint Eastwood) and sweet drifter Lightfoot (Jeff Bridges) meet when Thunderbolt jumps into Lightfoot's stolen car to escape a gunman. The pair embarks on an oddball journey being chased by Thunderbolt's former associates, the sadistic Red (George Kennedy) and cretinous Goody (Geoffrey Lewis).
Awards
