So, it was a busy weekend, and we only had time for one movie:
- The Brothers Bloom -The brothers referred to in the title, Bloom and Steven (played by Mark Ruffalo), have spent their entire lives as con men, staging ever-more complicated cons. Bloom is fed up with this fake life and wants out, but Steven - who loves coming up with convoluted schemes - convinces him to stick it out for one more, ultimate con. According to Steven, the perfect con is one where everyone gets what they want. He sets his sights on the wealthy and lonely Penelope. I'm not sure whether my Dad liked this one, but Ken and I both enjoyed it. It's a bit quirky (not again!) at the beginning, but we soon got lost in following the complicated scheme and trying to figure out who was actually conning who. Lots of fun.
