I gotta call you back. I ran someone over.

Henry's Crime (2010)
Chosen by me because I like to go to the cinema a lot also I had heard nothing about this movie apart from Judy Greer was in it - that was enough.

It really wants to be Bottle Rocket, a low key comedy about bumbling crooks with an interesting soundtrack and James Caan. It's not as good as that film, of course, but not without it's pleasures. Vera Farmiga continues to be an engaging presence on screen but it's asking for trouble when it wants us to believe Keanu Reeves would be good in a Chekov play (or indeed anything).
Not funny or confidant or off beat enough to be a hidden gem but not a waste of time either.
