フォードの自動車工を50年勤めあげたポーランド系米国人、コワルスキーは、愛車グラン・トリノのみを誇りに、日本車が台頭し東洋人の町となったデトロイトで隠居暮らしを続けていた。頑固さゆえに息子たちにも嫌われ、限られた友人と悪態をつき合うだけの彼は、亡妻の頼った神父をも近づけようとしない。コワルスキーを意固地にしたのは朝鮮戦争での己の罪の記憶であり、今ではさらに病が彼の体を蝕んでいた。

 イーストウッド監督はモン族について知っていたのだろうか。すごいなぁ。


Gran Torino is a 2008 American drama film directed, produced and starring Clint Eastwood. The film marks Eastwood's return to a lead acting role after four years, his previous leading role having been in Million Dollar Baby, and Eastwood has stated that this is his final film as an actor. The film features a large Hmong American cast, as well as Eastwood's younger son, Scott Eastwood, playing Trey. Eastwood's oldest son, Kyle Eastwood, provided the score. The film opened to theaters in a limited release in North America on December 12, 2008, and later to a worldwide release on January 9, 2009.
The story follows Walt Kowalski, a recently widowed Korean War veteran who is alienated from his family and angry at the world. Walt's young Hmong neighbor, Thao, is pressured into trying to steal Walt's prized 1972 Ford Gran Torino by his cousin for his initiation into a gang. Walt develops a relationship with the boy and his family.
Gran Torino was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $260 million worldwide.
