Ewen Bremner nice as the lead
3 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Leonard Paulson (Ewen Bremner) is lifelong compulsive thief. His brother Patrick (David Richmond-Peck) gets 7 years in prison when Leonard uses his car and leaves stolen mail in the back. They need $25k to get a good lawyer for the appeal. Leah Herzog (Sarah Strange) is being harassed by her ex Robert. Leonard snatches her purse and she suffers a panic attack. She is falling apart, drinking, and even has a night with the obsessive Robert. Leonard starts stalking and then befriends Leah. Meanwhile Leonard's friend Chris (Tyler Labine) has a plan to rob the restaurant workplace.

The movie doesn't look that well made by director Raphael Assaf. I do love Ewen Bremner and he shows that he's capable of being a great lead in a movie. I think he could do well to be the leading man more and not always relying on the quirky sidekick character. He has a charisma that is still evident when he's not acting outrageously. That's true with his normal voice. I like to see if he could be the lead in a mainstream romance.
