Sundance Institute Presents: “Emily the Criminal” at the Twilight Drive-In

August 5 @ 9:30 pm

FREE ADMISSION, registration is highly recommended.

August 5 | Not Rated | 93 mins | Directed by John Patton Ford​​ | Friday at 9:30 PM

Emily (Aubrey Plaza) is saddled with student debt and locked out of the job market due to a minor criminal record. Desperate for income, she takes a shady gig as a “dummy shopper,” buying goods with stolen credit cards supplied by a handsome and charismatic middleman named Youcef (Theo Rossi). Faced with a series of dead-end job interviews, Emily soon finds herself seduced by the quick cash and illicit thrills of black-market capitalism, and increasingly interested in her mentor Youcef. Together, they hatch a plan to bring their business to the next level in Los Angeles.
