Emily the Criminal casts Aubrey Plaza as a young woman with several strikes against her. Those strikes include student loan debt and a felony conviction involving an abusive boyfriend. She tries to make ends meet as a food delivery worker. Her pay's so low she can't even keep up with the interest on her student loans. A friend introduces Emily to the world of credit card fraud. Handsome Theo Rossi as Youcef, a Lebanese immigrant, notices her hunger, and welcomes her into his world of black-market TV's, computers, and luxury cars. Their romance and her fearlessness build to a gripping finale. Aubrey Plaza dares you to look away as this thriller turns up the heat. 90 minutes of Emily the Criminal left me breathless.
