From Back Cover:
"A BRILLIANT THRILLER! SUSPENSEFUL AND EROTIC!"
Anjelica Huston (When In Rome), John Cusack (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Annette Bening (The Kids Are Alright) star in this acclaimed hit where seduction and betrayal could lead to murder.
When small-time cheat Roy Dillon (John Cusack) winds up in the hospital following an unsuccessful scam, it sets up a confrontation between his estranged mother Lily (Huston) and sexy girlfriend (Bening). Both Lily and Myra are ruthless con-artists playing the game in a league far above Roy... and always looking for their next victim. The question soon becomes who's conning who as Roy finds himself caught in a complicated web of passion and mistrust.
Meh. I was bored with this. I'd heard great things about it and blind bought it during a John Cusack movie watching marathon, but I was just not engaged by it.
Rated R (MPAA)
