Miramax Con-Man Series
Four thrilling films featuring the sneakiest of con-men. Starring Hollywood favorites Heath Ledger, Matt Dillon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Mark Wahlberg.
It seemed simple. Just deliver the cash. But when Jimmy (Heath Ledger) loses ten grand of dirty money, the underworld comes knocking. If there's no cash, there's no more Jimmy. Suddenly it comes down to one hour, one girl, one crazy idea and ten thousand reasons to risk it all.
Recently released from prison, Leo Handler (Mark Wahlberg) just wants to get his life back on track. But when he takes a job with his powerful Uncle Frank and reconnects with his old friend Willie (Joaquin Phoenix), Leo finds himself unwittingly drawn into a world of sabotage, high-stakes payoffs and even murder.
Dova (Matt Dillon), Milo (Gary Sinise) and Law (William Fichtner) are small-time crooks who are in way over their heads. When a holdup goes terribly wrong, the robbers flee to a local bar, desperately taking everyone inside hostage. With nowhere to run and time running out, it's a deadly situation where every second counts.
Chris "Slapshot" Pratt (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), whose once-bright future has been dimmed by a head injury, is a night janitor at a bank. Lonely and frustrated, Chris falls prey to a con man's seductive promise of romance and a better life, and agrees to help rob the bank where he works.
