Overview

James Foley directs the slick crime caper Confidence, written by first-time screenwriter Doug Jung. Told in flashback, smooth-talking con man Jake Vig Edward Burns relates an elaborate scheme orchestrated by his gang :Gordo Paul Giamatti, Miles Brian Van Holt, and Big Al Louis Lombardi. The crew pulls off a swindling job stealing money from a guy named Lionel Leland Orser, who turns out to be a mob accountant for the crazy crime boss known as the King Dustin Hoffman. After the damage has been done, Jake and his crew attempt to pull off an even bigger scam to make up for their mistake. This time the con involves the King's enemy, the mob-connected banker Morgan Price Robert Forster. Two corrupt cops Donal Logue and Luis Guzman join Jake's team while the King appoints his henchman, Lupus Frankie G. to oversee the operation. Rachel Weisz plays Lily, Jake's love interest who is also in on the scam. Eventually, Andy Garcia shows up as FBI Agent Gunther Butan, who has been perpetually chasing after Jake. Confidence premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.

    Cool

    One of the coolest and sharpest of its genre in a long time, the feel of the film was a little bit like Ocean's Eleven. Elaborate with a love interest and all too sly not to get away.
