Gran Torino (15)

A KOREAN War veteran becomes the reluctant hero of a troubled neighbourhood when someone tries to steal his car.

Retired auto worker Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) leads a solitary life in Michigan, following the death of his wife.

Families of Hmong immigrants from south-east Asia have moved into the area, bringing with them marauding gangs of teenagers battling for authority.

When Thao (Bee Vang) is pressured into trying to steal Walt's gleaming 1972 Gran Torino, the war vet interrupts the heist and stands up to the gang.

To regain the family's honour, Thao is forced to work for Walt.

And although Walt initially wants nothing to do with him, he eventually puts his prejudices aside as they forge a life-changing friendship.
