Dramatic Thriller: A young man attempts to rescue his brother when their bank robbery attempt doesn't play out as planned.
Connie Nikas (ROBERT PATTINSON) is a young man who's overly protective of his adult brother, Nick (BENNY SAFDIE), who's somewhat mentally challenged. In need of money, Connie has Nick assist him in robbing a bank, and they nearly get away with that until the dye packs explode during their getaway. Nick ends up captured by the police and Nick then goes to his girlfriend, Corey Ellman (JENNIFER JASON LEIGH), in hopes that she can use her mom's credit card to pay for Nick's parole. Unbeknownst to them, Nick has been hospitalized after a brutal fight has left his face entirely bandaged, and he's under police guard at the local hospital.

Connie then attempts to rescue him from there, all of which results in him meeting and needing assistance from 16-year-old Crystal (TALIAH WEBSTER); making an unanticipated acquaintance out of small-time drug dealer Ray (BUDDY DURESS); and having a violent run-in with Dash (BARKHAD ABDI), a nighttime security guard at a local amusement park. During all of that, Connie does what he can to be reunited with his brother.

Older teens might be enticed by the buzz around the film, while fans of Pattinson might be interested as well.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
