The unbelievable but mostly true story of four young men who mistook their lives for a movie and attempted one of the most audacious heists in US history.

Fresh from the New Zealand International Film Festival 2018

Spencer Reinhard, Warren Lipka, Eric Borsuk and Chas Allen are four friends who live an ordinary existence in Kentucky. After a visit to Transylvania University, Lipka comes up with the idea to steal the rarest and most valuable books from the school's library. As one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history starts to unfold, the men question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives are simply misguided attempts at achieving the American dream.

UK/US, 2018, 116 min., Dir. Bart Layton
