Did You Know?


Jake: You tell people you steal and they never really trust you after that. I like it better when people don't trust me. I like it better when people don't like me.Then at least I know what to expect. It's a forgone conclusion; then I know not to need them.

Combining the best of movies like "The Outsiders" and "Stand By Me," I'd see it again in a heartbeat.
1 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this in Brooklyn of all places. The audience loved it, and I did too. Fresh concept, unusual faces, lush scenery. The star, Danny Alexander, broke my heart, and truly has a beautiful and powerful screen presence. Paz de La Huerta is a certified hottie, and Hunter Parrish has a sweet, Opie look. Cara Seymour from "American Psycho" made a transformation from how I remembered her. I noticed too that the cinematographer also did "The River Runs Through It," so no wonder the look was so rich. Melissa Painter wrote an unusual story, and has managed to weave people, dialogue and music (including the very cool over-credits song sung by Danny Alexander) into a work of art. Roger Ebert gives "Steal Me" a "thumb's up", and the LA Times reviewer does too. Combining the best of movies like "The Outsiders" and "Stand By Me," I'd see "Steal Me" again in a heartbeat.
