Thunderbolt & Lightfoot

Thunderbolt & Lightfoot

A FILM BY: Michael Cimino
WRITTEN BY: Michael Cimino
STARRING: Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, George Kennedy

Before the accolades for THE DEER HUNTER and the controversy of HEAVEN'S GATE, Michael Cimino made one of Hollywood’s most offbeat heist films. Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges play the title characters, a war veteran turned professional thief and a footloose drifter who fall in together. But Thunderbolt’s old running buddies (George Kennedy and Geoffrey Lewis) are hot on the trail of the loot from their last job, and it may require a new robbery to get rid of them. From its wildly memorable opening to its gut-wrenching climax, the film takes viewers on a unique ride.
