It's an unabashed plug for my cousin Rebecca's new documentary Stolen, which opens today with a premiere theatrical engagement at New York's Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street at University Place) from Friday, April 21, through Thursday, April 27 [Update: The film has been held over for additional screenings through Thursday, May 4].
Stolen explores the the 1990 art theft at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, where thieves escaped with 13 of the collection's paintings. The stolen art included works by Rembrandt, Degas, and Manet, and, perhaps most notably, Vermeer's "The Concert," one of only 35 surviving works by the Dutch master. New York magazine film critic David Edelstein calls Stolen "haunting and expansive."
