aghst May 18 Share May 18 Quote 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. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/emily_the_criminal Anyone watch this? I haven't yet but after Aubrey got good reception for her White Lotus role, surprised this one didn't get more attention. I don't recognize the writer-director. This may be a first feature. Guess it's somewhat social satire of the times. Link to comment
