Lionsgate Ordell (Mos Def) and Louis (John Hawkes) have planned the perfect kidnapping. Their target is Mickey (Jennifer Aniston), wife to a sketchy businessman named Frank (Tim Robbins) who’s hiding a fortune in a secret bank account. The plan is simple. Kidnap Mickey, tell Frank to pay the ransom if he ever wants to see his wife again and then retire in style. But they never considered the possibility that Frank might not want his wife back. Chronology is a funny thing.


Review: Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes and Mos Def Anchor 'Jackie Brown' Prequel 'Life of Crime' – Writer-director Daniel Schecter's first two features, "Goodbye Baby' and "Supporting Characters," were ultra-low-budget character studies about ordinary young people struggling through their private and professional lives with self-deprecating wit. "Life of Crime," Schecter’s stylishly fun and star-heavy adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel "The Switch," has little in common with those earlier works -- but it shares their foregrounding of playfulness over plot. 6 years 33 weeks ago via donnieyen

Apparently, no one’s ever won an Oscar for playing a president. I suspect that’s why director Steven Spielberg cast Daniel Day Lewis. (Better odds.) His eerily smooth performance as the 16th president is a consistent mix of gawky authority and patrician ease.
