The Pleasure of Being Robbed

2008 NR

Director Joshua Safdie's 16 mm film stars Eleonore Hendricks as Eléonore, a free spirit who makes a hobby out of kleptomania. Wandering the streets of New York City, she steals anything that gives her a sense of connection, from kittens to cars. Co-written by Safdie and Hendricks, the lyrical, visually inventive film features a parade of quirky characters -- including the director himself -- who serve as Eléonore's marks.
