Crackers is a 1984 comedy directed by Louis Malle. After a layoff, Westlake (Donald Sutherland) drifts into an entry-level position at Garvey's pawn shop in the Mission District of San Francisco. Westlake has one friend, Turtle (Wallace Shawn), a homeless man who is continually looking for something to eat. When Dillard (Sean Penn), an amateur musician, and Ramon (Trinidad Silva), an illegal immigrant from Mexico, stop by to trade a stolen radio for a guitar, Garvey (Jack Warden), the pawn shop owner, tells them they need more money. After some wrangling, Dillard agrees to install an alarm system for the pawn shop in exchange for the guitar. After the two leave, they hatch a plan to rob the pawnshop once the system is installed. Their plan is overheard by Boardwalk (Larry Riley), a local pimp, who tells Westlake of their intentions. Rather than tell his boss, Westlake joins forces with the would-be bandits. When Garvey goes to visit his dying mother, the trio puts their plan in action. Breaking into the pawn shop, the three are stunned when they find out what's behind the safe door. Then, Garvey arrives.moreless
