What happens when a pair of low-level criminals pick the right target, but find they are dealing with the wrong woman? Find out in the new dark caper comedy Life of Crime based on legendary author Elmore Leonard's novel The Switch. Directed by Daniel Schechter, it features an all-star cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins. Full of outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists, it is why Leonard has earned a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.
When Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara decide to kidnap Mickey Dawson, the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson, they plan to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. However, Mickey's two-timing no-good husband is actually holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress and decides he rather not pay the ransom and get his wife back. What ensues is a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.
Life of Crime will be released in theaters nationwide on Friday, August 29, 2014. Click here for showtimes and tickets. On the same day, it will also be available to rent and buy through iTunes and video-on-demand (VOD).
