The Best Thief in the World | 2004
A poignant tale of a family in crisis. Dad has suffered a stroke, and Mom's job as an English teacher barely pays the rent, especially with the added burden of three children. Her will to survive is palpable as she struggles with an unforgiving medical system and copes with a child teetering on adolescence. Izzy, the eldest, is definitely acting out. He tests every limit by stealing and breaking into apartments, although sometimes just to rearrange the furniture. It's as if retreating into other people's lives will help him make sense of his own.
