The characters, played by Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard, also appear in Very Good Girls (2013) where Sarsgaard's character has an ongoing romantic interest in Fanning's character, which is not necessarily welcomed.

Okay...I was expecting more. All the movie is about the plan. A clearly stupid and poor plan. We even don't know why they are doing that. We actually don't know anything about the characters because everything is silent and green. And that leads us to a non transparent story, full of holes and doubts.
Dialogs are nearly abstract, very plain. Eisenberg can't convince us he is kind of a criminal. There's no tension and that makes it more boring.
Then, the characters change, product of a particular situation (which was patently predictable)and we are expecting the characters to be real human beings, but...they are not.
And then the movie ends. There's no much more. And...OK.
