The Pleasure of Being Robbed Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A free-spirited thief touches the lives of everyone she steals from in director [[Performer~P516386~Josh Safdie~joshsafdie]]'s tale of loneliness in the big city. Eleonore ([[Performer~P568931~Eleonore Hendricks~eleonorehendricks]]) 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 ([[Performer~P516386~Safdie~joshsafdie]]) 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
