A curious and lost Eleonore looks for something everywhere, even in the bags of strangers who find themselves sadly smiling only
well a...展开fter she's left their lives. They owe her their thanks.
Eleonore is a pickpocket, a con artist and a thief. She'll pilfer your purse, your car, a handful of grapes or a litter of kittens.
She robs out of need, curiosity or maybe just for the hell of it. From the hipster bars of the Lower East Side to the cages of
Central Park Zoo, Eleonore steals her way through life in New York City - plus the occasional road trip to Boston - with a
freewheeling spontaneity that may lead her to most unexpected score of all. Eleonore Hendricks and director Joshua Safdie star in
this breezily lo-fi look at slacker larceny - co-written by Hendricks and Safdie and shot guerilla-style on the streets of NYC -
that rocked The Director's Fortnight at Cannes to become one of the most talked-about indie sensations of the year.
