Synopsis by Olivia Cantor
Allan Ungar directs this biographical crime caper based on the novel by Robert Knuckle. The story follows real-life criminal Gilbert Galvan Jr., who was known as The Flying Bandit during the 1980s. Gilbert escapes from a prison in Michigan and crosses the border toward Canada. While there, he changes his name to Robert Whiteman. He falls for a social worker named Andrea and starts robbing banks. As he gets good at it, he also catches the attention of the media and, eventually, the authorities. Starring Josh Duhamel, Elisha Cuthbert, Nestor Carbonell, and Mel Gibson.
