DIRECTOR: BILL FORSYTH
CAST: BURT REYNOLDS, CASEY SIEMASZKO, SHELIA KELLEY, LORRAINE TOUSSAINT
Before Boogie Nights introduced a new generation to Reynolds the wry, wonderful character actor, he had among the finest roles of his middle age in Forsyth’s caper comedy, playing a retirement-ready safecracker working in Portland, Oregon who takes on young Casey Siemaszko as his overeager apprentice. A sweet- spirited character study from Forsyth (Gregory’s Girl, Local Hero), who discovers a new rueful charm in Reynolds’ old rogue persona.
Breaking In is screening as part of the series Burt Reynolds.
