Life of Crime, Daniel Schecter’s adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel The Switch, is now playing on VOD and in theaters. The film features younger versions of the Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson characters from another Leonard adaptation, Jackie Brown, with John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) filling the roles this time around. The story features Hawkes and Bey kidnapping the trophy wife (Jennifer Aniston) of a wealthy man (Tim Robbins) only to find out he doesn’t actually want her back. The film also stars Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte. Life of Crime is loaded with juicy characters and great dialogue, and it’s definitely worth checking out.
