Clint Eastwood is like Santa Claus, always working, no matter how old. If he’s not producing or directing, he’s acting, and his choices are always great ones. “Gran Torino” will make your day. For more about this icon:



Retired auto worker and Korean War vet Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) fills emptiness in his life with beer and home repair, despising the many Asian, Latino and black families in his neighborhood. Walt becomes a reluctant hero when he stands up to the gangbangers who tried to force an Asian teen to steal Walt’s treasured car. An unlikely friendship develops between Walt and the teen, as he learns he has more in common with his neighbors than he thought.
