(2020) (Evan Rachel Wood, Richard Jenkins) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: A young woman joins a family of grifters who con and steal from others.
Robert (RICHARD JENKINS) and Theresa Dyne (DEBRA WINGER) are lifelong grifters who make a living conning and stealing from others. But they aren't that good at it and thus repeatedly try to avoid their landlord over their long-overdue rent.
They've even had their now 26-year-old daughter, the oddly named Old Dolio (EVAN RACHEL WOOD), in on their cons since she was little. Their latest ploy is to book roundtrip airline tickets with travel insurance and then pretend that Old Dolio's luggage never arrived back home.
Not the brightest mind, Robert informs the passenger seated next to him on the plane, Melanie (GINA RODRIGUEZ), of their plan and she immediately wants in on that and later action. But with Robert and Theresa having never given Old Dolio anything resembling a normal childhood or any sort of love, that begins to wear on her, prompting Melanie to want to take care of her...and more.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Unless they're fans of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem that likely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For some sexual references/language.
