Expertly adapting the characters from Mark Twain's seminal stories into the 21st century, Band of Robbers is a clever escapade that truly honors the essence of its source material. We meet thrill-seeking Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer as young boys pursuing adventure. But the authorities have a different concept of fun, and after being released from his latest stay in prison, petty crook Huck hopes to leave his criminal activities behind. But lifelong friend and corrupt police officer Tom has a different idea in mind. In a final endeavor to achieve their childhood dreams, Tom pulls the gang back together in the hopes of discovering a legendary treasure. Little do they know, this new caper will send them into more unexpected and dangerous territories than they ever faced as children. The sophomore feature from brothers Aaron and Adam Nee, with its impressively talented cast, comes together to create a slightly dark, but always witty comedy-adventure.
Adam and Aaron Nee's first feature film, The Last Romantic (distributed by IFC), premiered at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin and won the Grand Jury prize at the Starz Denver International Film Festival. They were then named by Filmmaker Magazine among their 25 Filmmakers To Watch. The Brothers Nee are also known for their music video work, including Dawes's "When My Time Comes," "A Fine Frenzy's Happier" and "Almost Lover," and the Yahoo Music Video Award-winner, Terrene's "Unwelcome." As directors, the brothers' client list has included Amazon, Comedy Central, Funny or Die, EMI, Capitol Music Group, Virgin Records, ATO, and more.
