Crunch Calhoun is a motorcycle stunt artist and former art thief who caused himself some pretty crippling damage in his last daredevil show. Now, feeling useless and bored without his usual adrenaline fix, he decides to go back to work in a new heist - right after his neck brace comes off first. He enlists his half-brother Nicky into his latest criminal scene, as well as his forger friend Guy de Cornet and his new apprentice Francie Tobin, while Crunch himself will use his motorcycle skills as the party's wheelman. The plan? Steal the Gutenberg Bible; the world's most valuable book; and switch it for a fake. It soon becomes clear as the heist gets underway, however, that not everyone in on the scheme can be trusted. Can such a huge plot be successful with betrayal on the cards?
'The Art Of The Steal' is an entertaining crime comedy directed and written by Jonathan Sobol ('A Beginner's Guide to Endings') in his second full length filmmaking venture. The movie was nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards at the Genie Awards (for Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role from Jay Baruchel and for Original Screenplay) and it is due for UK cinematic release on June 20th 2014.
