The Forger (2012)
Joshua, a teenager with a drugged-out mother on the run, wanders into the affluent community of Carmel, California. After getting himself into trouble, the authorities try to track down his mother. But in the meantime, a successful artist/businessman offers to take in Joshua and let him have a chance at a good life. His motives are questionable considering his line of business and how he plans to use Joshua's artistic talents, but Joshua has met a girl and he's not sure if the money is worth selling off his morals.- Written by napierslogs
Abandoned by his drugged-out, ex-stripper mother, homeless 15-year-old Joshua Mason comes into the declining Bohemian art community of Carmel, California, where his situation and his extraordinary artist talent come to the attention of others. Trespassing into the affluent home of Everly Campbell, Joshua finishes a project he finds in a secret studio, only to later learn that Everly is an art forger. Everly, initially angered by the intrusion, quickly changes his tune when Joshua appears to be a godsend. He manipulates the courts to allow him to take Joshua in, where, offering "the good life," he soon begins training Joshua in the highly profitable ways of forging great art, but Joshua's moral core is ill at ease.- Written by statmanjeff
