Exclusive Clip: Robert Redford Gets Dressed Down by College Kid in ‘Lions for Lambs’

Robert Redford's Lions for Lambs is out this week and the folks at MGM were kind enough to give us this exclusive clip of the film. Lambs follows Republican senator Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise) as he runs for president, gives a TV journalist (Meryl Streep) a story about his secret plan for victory in Iraq, and, presumably, teaches us all a very important lesson. In our clip, idealistic sociology professor Stephen Malley (Redford) butts heads with a cynical, privileged West Coast University student (Andrew Garfield) over the efficacy of our American political system. Enjoy!
