Story


JW (Joel Kinnaman), the promising business student who became an organized coke smuggler in "Easy Money", is serving hard time in prison and is struggling to get back on an honest path. There are glimmers of hope in his life: some venture capitalists are interested in a new piece of trading software he's developed, and while behind bars he's made peace with an old enemy. This all proves to be an illusion. On leave from prison, and back in contact with his former gang, JW learns that once you've walked in the shoes of a criminal there just may be no going back.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film has an economy of style (and an abundance of lying) that makes it feel special, for all the cliches..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..many sides to even ruthless and lethal men; the moral of their anguished story is how easy it is to tumble into the abyss after beginning one's crime career with a tentative step into questionable behavior..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..Easy Money is accidentally fascinating in some moments, but purposefully formulaic in many more..”
by Zachary Wigon [Village Voice]
