Reviews
Mine: Wonderfully written and acted story. I like the con-man story genre anyway and this gives tia new a fresh twist.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Uptight female psychiatrist (and best-selling author) becomes involved with a slick confidence man and his ``team,'' and quickly gets in over her head. Fascinating Hitchcockian tale by David Mamet, which also marks his film directing debut. Many of his stage cronies are on hand, notably Mantegna, in a dynamic performance, and Crouse, then Mamet's wife.
