Storyline

Adult brothers Patrick and Leonard Paulson, both tortured souls, have long been affected by an incident in their childhood, which has manifested itself differently in the brothers. Patrick writes as therapy, specifically about his and Leonard's lives. Younger by one year, Leonard, who works a day job as a waiter, is, on the other hand, a thief, both in property and personal crime. Because of their relationship, Patrick ends up taking the fall and the associated seven year jail sentence for Leonard's latest crime. On an unrelated incident, Leonard ends up having mugger's remorse after the fact when he recognizes his latest victim as one the nicer customers in the restaurant where he works. She is Leah Herzog, a junior editor at a publishing house, she who is just getting out of a destructive personal relationship. Leonard can see the profound negative affect the mugging has had on her. In Leah, Leonard sees many things as he inserts himself in her life. In the reversed role now of ... Written by Huggo

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.
