Synopsis

Anjelica Huston, John Cusack, Annette Bening
Roy (Cusack) is a practitioner of the small-con, cheating bartenders of $10, cheating sailors out of their cash. The other 'grifters', girlfriend Myra (Bening) and mother Lily (Huston) don't like each other one little bit. Not in their league, but caught squarely in the middle of this feline conflict, Roy is repelled by both options and carefully dances between the two women. Wonderful script, acting and direction.
Nominated: Best Director, Best Writing, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, Oscars 1991

Critics

open_quote Brisk, sleekly contoured, with a sophisticated sense of cynical fun.... skirting the edge of parody, it's the most puckish of film noirs close_quote Washington Post
