The Lookout (2007)

Directed by Scott Frank
Starred Joseph Gordon-Lewitt, Jeff Daniels, Matthew Goode, Isla Fisher, Bruce McGill,  ...
2007, United States, English.

This movie mainly focuses on how a member of a robbery team is got involved. This point of view, of course, is somehow different than the most of the heist movies we see. Slow in pace, the movie might loose some heist movie fans who look for action, in the beginning of the movie, but more you go, the better it gets.
I am not sure if everybody would appreciate this movie, but if you call yourself as a heist movie fan, then you might want to give a shot. Nothing big, but worth to see.

This is the first feature movie for director Scott Frank.

a slow pace heist
