Movie Info

Aspiring chef Danny (Callum Turner) is struggling to make ends meet, living with his mother and brother in a Polish neighborhood in Queens, New York. Ellie (Grace Van Patten) is a girl hardened beyond her years, who returns to New York at the request of a small-time hustler (Mike Birbiglia), with her eyes on an easy score. Danny gets a call one night to fill in for his brother on a job. It all seems simple enough: meet a driver (Ellie) with a briefcase, proceed to a rendez-vous spot and exchange one briefcase for another. But when Danny accidentally swaps the wrong bag, this pair of unlikely criminals is thrown together on a two-day odyssey to get the missing briefcase back. They travel through the boroughs and suburbs of New York City by train, bus and stolen bicycle - they break into a house - they tell half-truths about who they are - and they find themselves, in the midst of this chase, beginning to be slowly drawn to one another.

  • It's Tramps' attitude to be short and sweet that proves definitive, vital.

  • At a time when American romantic comedies aim for broad humor and questionable gender politics, [the film] provides a more intimate contrast to the market standard. If romantic comedies need a savior, Leon may be their best hope.

  • A small-scale work that owes its charm to the freshness, relaxed intimacy and unforced humor of its character interplay, and to the warm feel for the environments through which they move ...
