"One of the loveliest adventures of the year... director Phillip Borsos is able to make this a human story and still keep it exciting as an action picture."—Roger Ebert

After decades in prison, stagecoach robber Bill Miner (Richard Farnsworth, THE STRAIGHT STORY, TOM HORN) emerges in 1901 a free man without a place in 20th-century society. Times have changed, but in the face of all these changes, neither his good-humored patience nor his joy of life has abandoned him.

With the vigor of a teenager, Miner sees a screening of one of the first films, THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY, and is inspired to once again do what he does best.

Filmed with the beautiful Pacific Northwest as a backdrop, THE GREY FOX is a rare and touching yarn exploring and unravelling a greatly likable and unlikely hero. Beautifully shot by Frank Tidy (THE DUELLISTS) and wonderfully directed by Phillip Borsos (THE MEAN SEASON), THE GREY FOX is a richly satisfying film experience considered by most as one of the greatest Canadian films of all time. Don't miss this beautiful new restoration.
