At Cinefamily Tonight!

The Pleasure of Being Robbed

A carefree, pixie-haired kleptomaniac named Eleonore breathlessly traipses around city streets, stealing purses, cars and kisses just for the fun (and thrill) of it in this jazzy ode to reckless youth and the joys of New York. Shot guerrilla-style in grainy, beautiful 16mm, Pleasure of Being Robbed is 24-year-old New York writer-director Josh Safdie first film, and was the Closing Night film of the 2008 Cannes Directors' Fortnight and the only film from the U.S. to play in that section. Harkening back to the exciting, off-the-cuff school of '60s American independent and French New Wave filmmaking, while adding a charming and magical sensibility all its own, Safdie has given the audience a gift--a wonderful day in good company that, like it's heroine, is styas with you with more depth than you'd at first expect. The Cinefamily is proud to share work from a bright new talent from the Independent film world, and hopes to see more films like it!
