Still shot from the movie: Gran Torino.

Gran Torino

Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) is a Korean War vet growing older and grumpier with each passing day. So when his young Asian neighbor (Bee Vang), who is involved with a street gang, tries to steal his 1972 Gran Torino, he responds with gun threats. While Walt isn't surprised that this declaration of war makes him an enemy of the local hoodlums, he isn't prepared for the hero's praise he receives from the family next door. Suddenly the man is forced to face prejudices that pre-date his prized car. Get the movie review and more. »
