Description
A free-spirited thief touches the lives of everyone she steals from in director Josh Safdie's tale of loneliness in the big city. Eleonore (Eleonore Hendricks) is attractive, fearless, and stealthy enough to lift the wallet of even the most alert and aware citizens of New York City. But while most folks view thieves as inherently selfish, Eleonore has a generous streak a mile wide. One day, after nabbing the purse of an unsuspecting stranger and adopting a litter of kittens she finds in an abandoned laundry bag, and enlists the aid of her friend Josh (Safdie) in locating the car that corresponds to a set of keys she recently stole. Once they find the car, Eleonore realizes that she doesn't even know how to drive it. But that small detail won't prevent the brash young criminal from chauffeuring Josh back to his home in Boston. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

display_descriptionElénore, a charmer and a kleptomaniac, steals for curiosity's sake. She yearns to be anonymous, blending in and out of people's lives as she does with their stuff. She lives life in the moment, never knowing quite why she's beginning another day. The encounters are usually quick and flighty untill a friend, Josh who will do anything just to be by her side, bikes by in the midst of Eléonore trying to find the car that matches the set of keys she recently "found". This momentary lapse in her normal day-to-day leads her on a small jouney only to spiral back to her old ways.
