Life of Crime


Jennifer Aniston plays Margaret “Mickey” Dawson, a loving, if-not naive housewife whose husband, Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), has been embezzling millions for years and keeping the cash in off-shore accounts without her knowledge. Two career criminals, Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie (played by John Hawkes and Mos Def, respectively), catch wind of his scam and figure if they hold Mickey for ransom, Frank would have no choice but to pay up a million dollars. Except, what they don’t plan on is that Frank’s head over heels for his sex-kitten mistress, Melanie (Isla Fisher), and doesn’t want his wife back. What follows is an unbelievable sequence of double crosses, plot twists and violence that could only come from the mind of Elmore Leonard.
