Fans were pleasantly surprised with Aubrey Plaza's performance in Emily the Criminal, a crime thriller that premiered at Sundance earlier this year, followed by a theatrical run in the summer.

The film follows Plaza as the titular Emily, a woman burdened with student debt and the inability to get work due to her criminal record over a minor crime. After being approached about a job that could earn her a lot of money in a short amount of time, Emily descends into a life of crime.

The film has finally made its way to streaming and is available to watch on Netflix. Now that more and more people have access to the film, it's been receiving much more praise. Not just from movie lovers and Aubrey Plaza fans, either. Other celebs have expressed their love for Emily the Criminal online, with Seth Rogen being one of the latest to do so.
