Meet Henry (Keaun Revees), a mild-mannered man who was sent to jail for a bank robbery he didn’t commit. Unlike most skinny white dudes who end up in jail, Henry wasn’t forced to become a prison bitch. On the contrary, he actually made friends with a hardened criminal (James Caan). Now that he’s leaving jail, Henry figures that since he’s already done the time, he might as well commit the crime, and enlists the help of his convict friend to rob the same bank he was wrongfully convicted of robbing.
That might sound like a half-way descent premise, but don’t let it fool you. The subplot involves a love interest (Vera Farmiga) and a local theater troupe lead by an old-Russian guy. If I wanted to listen to some old commie spout platitudes, I’d rent a Susan Sarandon movie.
