Synopsis

There’s a popular strand of the crime genre concerning confidence games and the grifters, tricksters and hustlers that play them – first gaining the confidence of their ‘mark’, then executing a plan to coerce them into handing over large amounts of cash. In such films, the audience is often the mark, duped by thrilling narrative twists. This hilarious crime comedy is loosely based on a true story about a couple of con artists recruited by an FBI agent to infiltrate the murky world of crime and politics. It’s worth seeing for its recreation of 1970s period fashions, impressive performances, and lively, unpredictable storytelling.
