Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino) directs this crime thriller screenplay by Sam Dolnick, based on The New York Times Magazine article, “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule,” by Nick Schenk. Eastwood takes on the role of Earl Stone, a horticulturist and World War II vet who’s caught in Michigan running $3 million worth of Mexican cartel cocaine.
   

Overall, this is an ambling film that occasionally delivers moments of emotional resonance. Eastwood is 88 years old, and the former hunky lead is comfortable in his skin, gifted behind and in front of the camera, and still capable of crafting an entertaining story. (117 min.)

Should Congress fund President Trump's border wall?

Yes. Our southern border is in crisis!
No. It's a waste of tax money!
We don't need an actual wall. Just beef up border security.
I'm more worried about the Canadian border.
