Gran TorinoRecently widowed Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski (Eastwood) is isolated from his family, stuck in his ways cantankerous and grumpy. He saves his neighbour Thao (Vany), who is of Hmong descent, from a local gang an incident that begins a chain of events that will affect Kowalski and his neighbours forever.

Think Harry Callahan from the film Dirty Harry (1971), imagine him retired living in Michigan, surrounded by immigrant families, clinging to his old ways, hating his family, hating his neighbourhood and hating change, in fact the only thing he loves is his mint Gran Torino.

Eastwood is great, as always, as Walt, a man who relishes hating life so much he's forgotten how to live. Its great to see this character dragged back into life, made to care despite himself. It's a film of two halves, the first being funny as Walt sneers at everything and anything, treating everything with contempt, and the second dealing with much deeper more serious issues.

Watch it, you wont be disappointed.
