Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.

I hate that people can give film reviews or ratings on IMDB without having seen the film.
Firstly, if you don't like an actor, just don't watch the film. Don't go onto a ratings site a skew the scores.
Secondly, if you want to see a complete accurate portrayal of a biography watch the History channel.
This is based on the story of Jean Seberg and her persecution by the FBI. Is it groundbreaking? No. Is it a sanitised version of what is known? Yes.
Kristen Stewart more than held her own in this film. It didn't have a great script and the cinematography was clunky, and even though she had a pretty good supporting cast, they really didn't have much to play with. Its okay. But I wouldn't watch it again.
