Stand Up Guys
Twenty–eight years ago, Val (Al Pacino) chose to protect the identity of his close associates and has been in prison ever since. Now Val is a free man, and his best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) is there to take him in. The trouble is mob-boss, Mr. Claphands, holds a grudge against Val and has secretly ordered Doc to kill Val now that he is out of prison— or Doc will be killed. While Doc conceals his conundrum from Val, he convinces Claphands to let Val live through the night delaying his duties until morning. For one night they can revel in Val's newfound freedom pursuing mayhem.
After Doc and Val find their oldest friend and wheelman, HIRSCH (Alan Arkin), they indulge each other with wild abandon — bullets, robbery, drugs and sex. Back together again, the three men reflect on their friendship and days of glory passed.
By the early morning hours, the ticking deadline draws near, and Doc and Val must face Claphands.
