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 writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston) the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins) is kidnapped by two common criminals who intend to hold her for a $1 million dollar ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings.  But Frank, who is 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.
