Storyline

In Venice, California, Kelley Tanner and Jonas Trumball are homeless teenagers who live on the beach and spend the day using drugs, drinking booze and shoplifting to survive. One day, Jonas overhears a conversation in a parking area between a woman named Evelyn and her housekeeper, and Evelyn tells that she will travel for one month with her husband David and she gives the alarm code to her servant. Jonas sees the chance to rob the house and brings Kelley with him. Kelley is in need of family love since she was a foster girl that left her foster house to live on the streets, and she spends the days watching the home videos of Evelyn, David, their son Michael, who has a poster of "The Kid" in his room, and their deceased daughter Stephanie. But Jonas is interested in robbing as much as possible to start a new life in Mexico. He meets a dangerous criminal to fence the jewelry and the Porsches of the family. But the family returns and Kelley and Jonas need to flee from the house. When ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Fakey
8 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Was too fakey right from the start. Most dumpster diving streeters look nothing like our Hollywood made up with make up, eye candy actors. The ripping off of a small deli scenes were Holly stereotyping; the grungy look was too wardrobe department shopping; the dirty faces/bodies looked like what a make up artist would create with a brush and the same medium gray water based paint - brush painting in all the right places. More laughable than real. The matrix slow motion effects were as cheap as the very fake punches being thrown in one scene. The owners' reactions to home invasion and serious theft - "What's for dinner!" Son in owner's family predictably and unimaginatively falls for our now magically transformed theft girl (Cinderella after a bath and stolen clothes.) and like all love stories (well, Hollywood love stories) he never truly leaves her.

Roughly equivalent to daytime tele soap opera production if that is one's entertainment interest.
