The Lookout on DVD

The Lookout on DVD.  I really liked this character-driven thriller about Chris Pratt, a young man struggling to recover from a major head injury suffered in a car crash, who gets involved in a bank heist.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays this complicated lead with what the director describes as a “stillness and quietness” that fits beautifully with the whole tone of the movie.  Matthew Goode is the evil, manipulative villain who plans the robbery of a rural Kansas bank and slowly traps Pratt into joining his scheme.  Jeff Daniels, the biggest “name” actor in the cast, is Pratt’s blind roommate, best friend and occasional mentor.  This quiet, well-written film, shot mostly on the plains of Manitoba, will hold your interest throughout as the suspense builds and Gordon-Levitt’s performance draws you into the Pratt character.
