Against the backdrop of a myth-drenched, apple pie America, the film focuses on what have become Redford's pet themes of recent years: Although it has not fared particularly well in his own country, Redford hopes that his new film will be "uplifting in a time of cynicism".

That was just in my nature," he says. I was too young and inexperienced, a lot of rough stuff happened. I thought I was going to be treated like the guy in American In Paris. I didn't realise what the French were like," he says.
I got what I was looking for. I wanted to prove them wrong," he says, and it still sounds oddly bitter. Living on bouillon in New York, Redford did, in fact, have to grow up quickly when their first child, a daughter, died of cot death. It was very traumatic," he says. The Redfords went on to have three children - Shauna, David and Amy - but while his career glittered in the spotlight, darkness stalked the edges of his family life. His son developed liver complications from ulcerative colitis in his teens and had to undergo two liver transplants.
You feel such terrible impotence. It was hard, but he is all right now, I am happy to say. We still have great love, great affection, great friendship.
