Emily (as played in a truly Oscar-worthy performance by a smoldering yet underplaying Aubrey Plaza) is saddled with student debt and locked out of the job market due to a minor criminal record. Desperate for income, she takes a shady gig as a "dummy shopper," buying goods with stolen credit cards supplied by handsome and charismatic middleman Youcef (Theo Rossi). Faced with a series of dead-end job interviews, Emily soon finds herself hooked by the quick cash and illicit thrills of black-market capitalism—and, in this tight, crisp, unusual thriller, “hooked” is what we are as well. “Elevated by an incredible, layered performance, writer-director John Patton Ford’s debut feature is a show-stopping, intense thriller with depth”—Mae Abdulbaki, ScreenRant.
