Is It Any Good?
This is one of those twisty-turny stories in which it is fun to be in on the con, and even more fun to find that we have been conned ourselves. The big deception at the heart of the story is a little disappointing -- oddly uninventive. But the marvelous cast does wonders with smart, tough dialogue. The pleasures of this movie are not so much in the plot as in the small moments of character. That's where the real surprises and freshness are.
The "con" in "con man" comes from the word "confidence," because a con man doesn't use stealth or force to steal from his victims -- he wins their confidence, and so they give him their money, often happily, always greedily, because he leads them to think that they will get a lot more back. Doing that requires a great deal of confidence on the part of the crook.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
