Standout performances from Aubrey Plaza and Theo Rossi - and they have great chemistry to boot. A grounded and wholly relatable story as well - where some movies seem to glamorize a criminal lifestyles, this humanizes it and no one winds up exactly where they want. But beyond that, it's really Plaza dealing with everyday life - working a crap job, trying to pay off a mountain of student loans - dealing with a criminal record - that really makes this feel like more than your typical crime/drama film.

Aubrey Plaza is not half-bad as a young woman who in lacking direction in her life, winds up engaging in criminal activity for need of extra money. More of a character study than a crime drama but it has its gripping moments. You really sense the frustration and desperation in Plaza's performance.
