Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Company You Keep stars Robert Redford, who also directed, as a once-radical fugitive who's wanted for a 1960s bank robbery that left a guard dead -- but who long ago went underground, changed his name, and left everything behind. Once the long-cold case again becomes national news, everything changes. Expect a fair bit of strong language (mostly "f--k" and "s--t"), plus plenty of fiery talk about revolutionary ideals, as well as a few scenes that feature people drinking beer. And one aging hippie now gets by smuggling large quantities of marijuana. The all-star supporting cast includes Shia LaBeouf, Susan Sarandon, and Julie Christie.

Sexual Content

Characters flirt and sometimes discuss their past romantic entanglements.


A character is chased through the woods by federal agents. Several scenes include old, grainy news footage of a bank robbery that left a security guard dead.


Strong language includes multiple uses of both "f--k" and "s--t," plus "ass," "a--hole," "hell," "damn," "goddamn," and more.

Social Behavior

It's not always easy to make the moral choice, especially when it might have serious consequences. Jim, as a fugitive on the run for a crime that was committed decades ago, meets several of his old co-conspirators, and some are quite reluctant to help him if doing so threatens the comfortable lives they've created for themselves.


Labels/brands seen include GMC, Volvo, Twitter, Google, and Toyota.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character smuggles large bales of marijuana in a sailboat. Other people drink beer at a bar.
