Synopsis

A curious and lost Eleonore looks for something everywhere, even in the bags of strangers who find themselves sadly smiling only well after she’s left their lives. They owe her their thanks.

Our take

Look out Coens, America has a new filmmaking team of brothers! After a series of ingenious shorts, the Safdies took to the streets of New York for their debut to tell the story of lonely kleptomaniac Eléonore. In its sly gags and loose-limbed freedom, it leads the way to the Safdies’ hit Good Time.
