Synopsis

“With a tender observational style comparable to Gus Van Sant’s adolescent portraits, The Lockpicker enters the pantheon of coming-of-age films, distinguished, as it is, by its impressionistic form punctuated with dreamlike imagery.”

-Vancouver International Film Festival

 

After the death of a friend, a teen thief fantasizes about getting out of town. When his closest friend is victimized by violence, he is forced to choose between fighting back and becoming what he fears, or leaving behind everyone and everything he knows.

105 Minutes
