Lift (2001)


This feature takes us into the world of "boosters" or shoplifters where a charismatic, intelligent young female booster from a dysfunctional family, notably her mother and grandmother, engages in the illegal occupation of shoplifting. A non-stereotypical view of how problematic family relations fed her foray into a criminal profession.
