I watched this film at its premiere at Beverly Hills at the film festival,this film was awarded as the best feature film at the closing ceremony night. I'm not one for movies about money and mafias and cons and all that, but aside from that, it's just as much a tale about relationships and what people are really like. This film really benefited from the actors improvising, as it lead to some very funny moments.My only criticism is that it felt it lacked a little something with story. The actors improvise on their greyish characters and provide more entertainment than the script possibly could. That certainly isn't the film-maker's achievement but he did choose the right cast that could pull that con off on the audience. I can say that I was not disappointed and absolutely loved the film. People take different experiences and sensibilities with them when they see movies, and mine led me to be engaged and empathetic towards the characters. Their story interested me and I came out of the cinema thoroughly enjoying myself.
