R | | Drama
Disgruntled Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski sets out to reform his neighbor, a Hmong teenager who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possession: a 1972 Gran Torino.
The jersey Walt's grandson wears at the funeral is that of former Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams.
God, I am sorry for Dorothy, Walt. She was a real peach.
Walt Kowalski: Thanks for coming, Al.
When Walt rescues Sue and Trey from the three thugs, Sue and Walt drive away. If you watch the buildings in the background, they drive by the same school more than once.
The credits scroll over a highway overlooking the lake shore, with the Warner Logo appearing in black and white.
