Class Act - That just sums him up!
That's great talent. And that's what makes him a great actor.
His movies speak of gentle vulnerable romance, the kind of love that every man and woman desire, but sometimes can never have. In the slowdance number with Kristen, neither of them utter a word, yet in a crowded room full of strangers, these two people perform the dance of love with such depth of feeling that you would never want the dance to end, as much as the characters themselves.
But, its not just romance. It is also about the great strength of character that Robert exudes in his movies, be it the Gen in the Last Castle, or the cocky billionaire businessman in Indecent Proposal or as the Horse Whisperer, or as the CIA agent with a conscience in Spy Game.
Like I already said, I could go on forever, but I am putting the brakes right here, lest there is nothing left for your imagination or what if it gets cloyingly sweet! I would not want to turn away potential Redford admirers and kill them with an overdose of the Redford charm.
I would rather you watch his movies and nod your head in agreement and say - She was right!
