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.

This One is a Hidden Gem
18 July 2017 | by christopherportizSee all my reviews

Imperfections is a movie that revels in the flaws we all have, wrapped up tightly in the narrative of a heist movie. What's ironic is that Imperfections manages to betray its namesake, delivering a masterclass movie that appeals to all audiences, whether they're looking for a light film in the vein of a romantic comedy or a thematic experience that makes one question his or her morals. The plot follows Cassidy, an out-of-work actress who finds herself evicted and living back with her mother in Chicago. When the man Cassidy's mother is seeing offers her a job at his business – a precious gem import shop – she must learn the unique position she's been offered: the diamond courier. What follows is a wild descent through uncomfortable moral quandaries, unexpected twists and a plot that dances on all the grays the ethical spectrum has to offer. Cass grows close to characters who she intends to exploit for personal gain, and these characters are written in such a way that their endearing qualities nearly always tug at the audience's gut. Despite this, the movie never becomes unenjoyable, having far more in common with The Wolf of Wall Street than something like Heat. The lighter tone Imperfections adopts doesn't impose upon the truly significant nature of the film's content, but rather sands the edges of the piece in a way grittier movies don't. What emerges is a polished product that is downright fun to watch in the moment, but manages to stick with the viewer long after the credits roll. A genuine treat from start to finish, Imperfections is a gem of a movie in and of itself that I can only recommend.
