“Life of Crime” Giveaway

We are proud to announce a giveaway in partnership with PartnersHub, in conjunction with Roadside Attractions for the comedy caper, Life of Crime! Read on to find out how you can take part in our contest and win a $15 Fandango gift card!

Life of Crime PosterLife of Crime, the new caper comedy from legendary author Elmore Leonard starring Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Will Forte and Isla Fisher is coming to theaters, on demand and iTunes August 29th! To celebrate the release of the film based on Leonard’s book, “The Switch”, we’re giving away a $15 Fandango gift card to one lucky reader!

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

With a cast featuring Tim Robbins, Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, and Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), it’s hard to go wrong—these are talented, seasoned actors who can easily raise the level of the material they’re working with thanks to their performances. And that’s exactly what they do here – these actors are better than the roles they’re given, and many of the small, inspired character moments we see throughout the film are clearly thanks to them. Aniston in particular is great as Mickey, and it’s fun to watch her enjoy herself in a fun, multi-faceted role that harks back to her days on Friends.
