The Natural:

2015 Chaplin Award: Robert Redford

'It’s easy to underrate Robert Redford. A generous performer whose technique too often flies below the radar and whose name is synonymous with classic good looks, he could have sustained a fruitful career without taking risks. But instead, he used his box-office clout to finance era-defining dramas and thrillers, and his parallel directing career evinces a sure command of storytelling and a feeling for characterization.'

Barbra Streisand will present the 42nd Chaplin Award to fellow Oscar winner Robert Redford, the Film Society of Lincoln Center said today. In addition, Jane Fonda, the recipient of the 28th Chaplin Award, will be joined by filmmaker J.C. Chandor and John Turturro at the Gala event taking place Monday, April 27 at Lincoln Center
