The Brothers Bloom

(USA, 2008, 114 minutes)

A sibling team of conmen sets up an elaborate sting on a ditzy heiress, but she begins to relish the adventure too much and one of the brothers falls in love with her. Sparklingly inventive combination of heist movie, screwball comedy, metafictional narrative and romance that shouldn't really work but does thanks to inspired writing, virtuoso handling and strong performances.
