Storyline

Cassidy Harper (Virginia Kull) is a struggling actress sleeping on her mother's couch (Marilu Henner) and grinding out auditions, fearing that any chance at stardom may have already passed her by. Desperate to save enough money to move to Hollywood, she takes a job working as a runner for her mother's boyfriend (Ed Begley, Jr.), an importer in Chicago's diamond district. When she realizes the money is trickling in too slowly for her to put a stake together, she conspires with the owner's son (Ashton Holmes) to stage a robbery and keep the diamonds - using her former boyfriend (Zach McGowan) as the fall guy. Their hare-brained scheme only gets more complicated when she realizes she's still in love with her volatile ex.

A Funny and Charming Heist Film
19 July 2017 | by justinannazoneSee all my reviews

Looking for an exciting heist comedy? Imperfections is the film for you. Channeling The Big Lebowski, David Singer's film is full of offbeat characters diving into a world of crime they aren't exactly sure of how to be in. Virginia Kull (Boardwalk Empire)'s Cassidy is a struggling actress who takes a job working at a diamond store. When her and her boss' son (Revenge's Ashton Holmes) decide to fake a robbery and take the insurance money, things get out of hand. Cassidy finds herself falling back in love with her ex-boyfriend and would be patsy, Ray (a scene-stealing Zach McGowan of Shameless), tangled up with real criminals and handling her mother's relationship with her boss (a delightful pairing of Taxi's Marilu Henner and St. Elsewhere's Ed Begley Jr.). The plot twists and turns as they lie and flirt with each other and the result is a very entertaining crime-caper that leaves you guessing until the end. Fantastic performances really bring to life a script full of witty banter and dry humor. Some inspired camera work, including a couple of great tracking shots, compliments the acting nicely and keeps the film moving. Imperfections plot is well-paced and takes time to introduces complexities to the characters that really pay off. Ed Begley Jr.'s character had a lot of layers to him that I found interesting, but won't reveal to avoid spoiling anything. This is a very well-crafted and fun heist film that packs a little bit of everything. Imperfections is worth the watch.
