http://www.cuffmasters.com : Clint Eastwood is back starring and directing in another box office smash after the awarding success of his effort - Million Dollar Baby - and once again he play's the gritty never-say-die loner.
Plot ==== For his fourth directorial feature in the span of two years, Clint Eastwood tells the story of a grizzled Korean War vet's reluctant friendship with a Hmong teenage boy and his immigrant family.
Set in contemporary Detroit, GRAN TORINO tackles the shifting cultural and economic landscape of not only the Motor City, but America as well. Eastwood stars as Walt Kowalski, an unabashed bigot who never heard a racial insult he didn't love. Bitter, haunted, and full of pride, Walt refuses to abandon the neighborhood he's lived in for decades despite its changing demographics as he clings desperately to a mindset long since out of step with the times.
When his Hmong neighbor Thao tries to steal his prized muscle car as part of a gang initiation, Walt is forced to grapple with the world around him. GRAN TORINO's approach to the complicated issue of race relations is equal parts Archie Bunker and CRASH.
Starring ======= Clint Eastwood as Walt Kowalski Bee Vang as Thao Vang Lor Ahney Her as Sue Vang Lor, Christopher Carley as Father Janovich Brooke Chia Thao as Thaos mother Chee Thao as Thao's widowed grandmother
