Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell) plays a motorcycle daredevil vaunted less for his death-defying leaps than his calamitous crash landings. Crunch also fancies himself something of a master thief, although his success there equals his success on his motorcycle and so winds up in prison when he is double-crossed by Nicky (Matt Dillon), his brother and partner in crime. Released after serving his time, the cash-strapped former stuntman is inevitably tempted to complete one last score, and reluctantly reunites with his scheming sibling. With a painstaking plan in place and the old crew reassembled, the million-dollar question becomes: can the Calhoun brothers pull off the job before their tenuous truce unravels?
The Art of the Steal had its World Premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival
