Movies with Meg: ‘The Old Man and the Gun’, ‘Halloween’ & ‘The Hate You Give’

Local movie maven Meg Weichman is in with her picks for mid-October:

‘The Old Man and the Gun’ will reportedly be iconic actor Robert Redford’s final work on camera. It details the story of the man who could be considered America’s friendliest bank robber and promises to be the can’t miss film of the fall!

‘Halloween’ brings Jamie Lee Curtis back just in time for the spooky season with a sequel decades in the making. It promises the hack and slash you expect, while rolling in an extremely pertinent message for the ‘Me Too’ era.

‘The Hate You Give’ has another important message. A girl witnesses the shooting death of her friend at the hands of a white police officer and is torn between the privileged, mostly white school she attends and her community.
