Matchstick Men (2-Sep-2003)

Director: Ridley Scott

Writers: Nick Griffin; Ted Griffin

From novel: Matchstick Men by Eric Garcia

Keywords: Crime, Con Artists

Two con men attempting to pull off a grand caper must contend with the sudden arrival of the senior huckster's estranged daughter.

Roy Waller and Frank Mercer, two full-time con artists with a penchant for a killer swindle, find themselves primed for a glorious payday with the sale of hilariously overpriced "water filtration systems" to gullible individuals and rigged prize "giveaways". Complicating matters for the pair is Roy's growing inability to maintain a sound mind brought about by severe agoraphobia and a moribund social life, troubles growing in severity when his estranged teenage daughter unexpectedly enters the picture and threatens the continued existence of his bustling racket.
