The game of graffiti art comes with few rules and a lot of bravado, as young Sofia and Malcolm discover when they try to defend their name after their latest spraypaint masterpiece is defaced by a rival gang. Over the next 48 hours, the two roam the sun-drenched streets of New York, hatching schemes to get enough cash for their master plan — “bombing” the famous apple in the Mets’ stadium — all the while figuring out their role in the underground scene and with each other.
With irresistible performances from its two leads, Gimme the Loot is a warm, spirited look at two kids just trying to get by, one tag at a time.
