Steal Me - Movie Synopsis & Plot
In Steal Me, writer/director Melissa Painter (Admissions, Wildflowers) has crafted a refreshingly honest portrayal of relationships - sexual and otherwise - around a 15-year-old kleptomaniac, Jake (Danny Alexander), who arrives in a small Montana town searching for his prostitute mother.
In the course of Jake's troubled search for his mother, he befriends Tucker (Hunter Parrish), a corn-fed local boy who catches Jake red-handed stealing the radio right out of his truck. After a foot chase and a brief scuffle, the boys ultimately become friends, discovering that each has something the other wants -- Jake has a quiet mystery and total freedom, while Tucker has stability and a happy home. At first, Jake brings Tucker out of his shell, convincing him to pursue his longtime crush, the sexually wise, Lily Rose (Paz de la Huerta). However, when Tucker's family nervously takes Jake in and he begins to become deeply involved with the people of the town, things grow complicated.
