Overview

Three teams of criminals who have nothing in common but ineptitude each plot a big score in this wacky independent comedy. Connie (Phyllis Somerville) is an elderly and eternally ill-tempered woman who runs a run-down pawnshop in Brooklyn with the help of her dim-witted son Douglas (Daniel Stewart Sherman). There's a large safe behind the main counter of Connie's shop, and for years local ne'er-do-wells have been speculating about what valuables she might have stashed inside. When Connie falls ill and is taken to the hospital, three gangs of would-be thieves swing into action -- "The Amateurs," led by Fitz (Danny Masterson) and Dino (Michael Cecchi), who seem to have learned everything they know about crime from watching old movies about the mob; "The Moolies," led by Ronald (Leon) and Maya (Serena Reeder), whose style and attitude harkens back to the glory days of Yo! MTV Raps; and "The Sputniks," led by Lana (Aysan Celik) and Slava (Jonathan Hova), who hail from some former Soviet republic and literally live in black and white. Unfortunately, none of these small-time thieves are aware of the other two groups -- and they're all surprised to find they've chosen the same night to knock over the pawnshop. Also featuring Dominique Swain and Blanchard Ryan, Capers was an official selection at the 2009 Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California.
