Robin is a social worker in Oakland on the verge of losing her job for getting too close to her clients; she's African-American and grew up in the neighborhood. She falls for Brooklyn, a White Frenchwoman, who's a thief with dreams of running a motorcycle repair shop. Robin is not only willing to be Brooklyn's lover, she's willing to join in the robberies because she sees community projects that need money: she becomes an anonymous Robin Hood. When her personal life takes a sharp turn and she wants to do one last job, Brooklyn's jealousy flares. Is there any way to resolve these conflicts of love, family, finance, and violence? Written by
A decent story, good characters and the actings not bad either. The look of the film is very TV, and unpolished, but it retains interest if you can overlook that.
Its more of a love story than anything else, and not a mystery at all, the previous comment was misleading. The two women who play the main characters carry the story well, and Clody Cates, who plays Brooklyn, definitely has something arresting about her. The dialogue is spare, and minimal, but has a certain charm. Its very down to earth and real, sometimes uncomfortably so, but its well written and the drama is not overdone like so many Hollywood movies.
Given a bigger budget, this could have been a great movie.
