Lie. Cheat. Steal. Rinse. Repeat.
Meet Roy (Nicolas Cage) and his protégé Frank (Sam Rockwell), a couple of small- time con artists (aka “Matchstick Men”) who are on the verge of their most lucrative swindle. Roy’s private life, however, is not so successful.
An obsessive-compulsive agoraphobe (and chainsmoker) with no personal relationships to call his own…until he learns he has a 14-year old daughter Angela (Alison Lohman). Now, Angela wants in on the partnership – but that could seriously jeopardize Roy’s peace of mind, not to mention his whole way of life.

- " A cleverly planned switcheroo story in which the twist at the end is the knife in the back. " – Urban Cinefile Critics
