My Review:

Clint Eastwood directs and stars as Walt Kowalski in “Gran Torino.”  Walt is a crusty old Korean war veteran with two grown sons.  He’s just lost his wife and is unhappy about changes to his neighborhood, including the new Hmong family who has moved next door.  Walt’s a racist, with a lot of issues, but he’s got a solid inner compass.  The family next door ends up becoming his extended family.  This is a time of turmoil in Detroit, and gangs are running rampant.  Walt takes it upon himself to try to correct the situation.  This is a touching, funny, earnest and heart-felt movie.  Brilliantly directed, and beautifully acted.  One of this year’s best movies.  Expect many accolades come awards time.
