Product Description

“With a terrific cast led by Keanu Reeves, Vera Farmiga and a splendid James Caan, Henry's Crime is a fun comedy with irresistible heist and heart.” (Boxoffice Magazine) Reeves stars as Henry Torne, a wrongly accused man who winds up behind bars for a bank robbery he didn’t commit. After befriending a charismatic lifer (Caan) in prison, Henry finds his purpose — having done the time, he decides he may as well do the crime. But his outlandish plan to rob the very same bank spins wildly out of control, as he finds himself performing in a stage play and falling in love with the production’s seductive leading lady (Farmiga).

Amazon.com

Henry (Keanu Reeves), the Buffalo toll collector-turned-criminal mastermind at the heart of this offbeat drama, lives a quiet life with his wife, Debbie (Judy Greer), until high school acquaintance Eddie (Fisher Stevens) tricks him into driving a getaway car, which leads to a three-year stretch for armed robbery. A new Henry emerges after his cellmate, Max (James Caan, having the time of his life), encourages him to live a little, reasoning "You've done the time, you may as well do the crime." Then, before he gets out, Debbie leaves him for another man (Danny Hoch, who plays Eddie's partner). Fortunately, Henry soon crashes--literally--into Julie (Vera Farmiga), a brittle actress with a soft center, and joins her in a production of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard that takes place in a theater connected to the fateful bank by means of a Prohibition-era tunnel, which the newly sprung Max helps him to excavate. But when Eddie muscles in on the action--things get complicated. Written by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil), Henry's Crime benefits from the light touch of Malcolm Venville (44 Inch Chest). If the pieces--screwball comedy and film noir--don't always fit together the way they should, the movie evokes one of those Michael Caine capers from the 1960s, even if Reeves lacks the same degree of savoir-faire. Sprightly support from Bill Duke, as a security guard, and Peter Stormare, as a director, plus retro-soul selections from Daptone Records help the existential ennui go down easy. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Unfortunately there is no ending, so if you want one, do not start this movie.

And in HENRY'S CRIME he displays what would appear on the surface to be a wooden character but who is actually a man who never quite came alive.
Mark Turner
A nice little indie flick, really good actors, interesting story within a story, lovely!

One assumes that Henry (Keanu Reeves) has some kind of inner life. He seems to be a likable, easy-going fellow; it's just that he's a bit...inscrutable. Maybe it's his job. Working the graveyard shift night after night at a N.Y. Thruway tollbooth would put anybody in semi-comatose state. Nothing fazes the agreeable yet impassive Henry, one way or the other-although he does display a slight twitch when, one morning at breakfast, his wife (Judy Greer) broaches the subject of the couple having a child. Suddenly, we get the impression that Henry would prefer to be anywhere else but there, at that moment, having that particular conversation. What's going on? Is this a troubled marriage? Does he love his wife? Is this cipher of a man internally harboring primal doubts about life itself? Or...is he suffering in silence from a sudden attack of gas? There's really no way of discerning.

We never get a chance to find out exactly what Henry is contemplating, because that is precisely the moment that Fate intervenes. An old high school chum named Eddie Vibes (Fisher Stevens) unexpectedly shows up on his doorstep, with a drunken cohort in tow. Both men are dubiously outfitted for a game of baseball. Eddie wants to know if Henry can give them a ride to their "game". Nothing about this questionable early-morning scenario seems to raise any red flags for the ever-malleable Henry. Even Eddie's request to stop at the bank "on the way"-and to park the car out front and wait while his passengers go inside-fails to elicit the tiniest raised eyebrow from Henry. Needless to say, the heist goes awry, Henry's car stalls, his "friends" flee...and guess who ends up in stir?

Although he owes them squat, Henry doesn't rat out the real culprits and takes the fall, while his demeanor remains unchanged.

Format: Amazon Instant Video
HENRY'S CRIME is a dark comedy that actually carries a fairly good afterburn. The story is solid, the characters are unusual, and the setting in Buffalo, NY is appropriately dark and dank. This is a tale of how people react to their own personalities, moving through the world seemingly oblivious to those around them, afraid to create dreams much less go after them.

Flatline Henry Torne (Keanu Reeves) works the night shift in a freeway tollbooth, quite alone, and seemingly undisturbed by his isolation. At dawn he goes home to his tiny house where he greets his wife, nurse Debbie (Judy Geer) who wants to talk about beginning a family but as usual things distract the couple's ability to have a conversation. Friends pick up Henry to have him replace a member of the neighborhood baseball team and Henry goes along (as he does with everything that comes his way) only to wind up as the driver of a getaway car for his 'teammates' as they pause to rob a bank. Henry is so loopy that he is not sure what happened and is arrested by the bank cop Frank (Bill Duke) and without much effort in protecting his innocence, Henry is convicted and imprisoned. There he meets Max Saltzman (James Caan) who loves being in the protection of prison (low goals in life). When Henry comes up for parole, Max wishes him luck in finding a dream (or waking up to life) and Henry wanders back to his home: Debbie has married worthless Joe (Danny Hoch) and is pregnant - and none of this seems to bother Henry either. Henry decides to return to the bank he was convicted of 'robbing' and is struck by a cellphone carrying driving actress Julie (Vera Farmiga). Henry has feelings (surprise!) for Julie, follows her into the theater next to the bank where Julie is rehearsing Chekhov's 'The Cherry Orchard'.

i turned this off to watch CSPAN so I would quit nodding off!

Slow plot, decent characters but no one to really draw you in. no humor or action. No real appeal.

**WARNING: HEAVY PLOT SYNOPSIS**

Keanu Reeves plays the meek Henry Torne, who works a toll booth in Buffalo. He is having some problems with his wife Debbie (Judy Greer, a young version of Susan Sarandon). He is conned into driving some guys to a baseball game, only as it turns out they rob a bank and Henry is the only one who gets caught. Henry meekly says nothing in his defense and gets sentenced to 3 years. During this time his wife leaves him for another man, which doesn't seem to bother Henry. In prison Henry meets Max Saltzman (James Caan), prison philosopher, barber, and story teller. Caan convinces Henry that if he did the time, he should do the crime.

Henry gets out of jail and appears to have walked home. His wife is pregnant by Joe (Danny Hoch), one of the bank robbers. Joe tries to recruit Henry to sell in his pyramid scheme, er ah multi-level... Henry's belongings are packed into one small box. Henry doesn't seem to mind at all.

Like a moth to a flame Henry is attracted to the bank...as he is walking in the middle of the street he gets hit by a female driver, who was paying no attention while chatting on her cell phone. She immediately gets out of the car and blames the victim.

Henry finally realizes his life's goal: To rob the bank he didn't rob. He goes to Max for help. Max is a lifer. He wants to stay in prison and not get out. At his review board he twitches and says to the panel if he got out he is going to kill their dog. Henry wants Max to get out and help him.

The theater, across from the bank, 80 years ago had a tunnel that went to the bank vault. Julie (Vera Farmiga), the woman who clocked Henry with her car is an actress, performing in "The Cherry Orchard" a play like the movie is both a comedy and tragedy.
