Actor Robert Redford is starring in the critically-acclaimed new movie "All Is Lost," which many could say is a metaphor for the U.S. government.
The performer has a lot to say about the situation in Washington right now and says race has a lot to do with the partisan gridlock. CNN's Nischelle Turner reports.
On the political drama playing out in Washington, Redford says:
"There are other issues there, it's not just racism. I think it's a group of people that are so afraid of change, and they're so narrow minded, that some people when they see change coming get so threatened by change, they get angry, and they get terrorized, and then they get vicious. Those are – I think that's who these people are. They're so afraid of change they're behaving miserably."
In part two of the interview, Redford says he hopes for change with a new generation and with women in politics.
"I think the future should belong more to women. And young people. And I think the young people today who are just coming into age, give them the reigns. I think they can do better than we have."
