Clint Eastwood directs and takes the role of Walt Kowalski, a taciturn man's man whose only love, now that his wife Mary has died, is the 1972 car he helped to build as a Detroit auto worker. Angry, isolated, foul-mouthed, and racist, Kowalski is at war with his family, the Catholic Church, and his neighbours, a group of Hmong immigrants from South East Asia. Then the attempted theft of his beloved car forces him into the community and towards a sort of redemption. This is a very satisfying film especially for Eastwood fans.
