About the Movie
Bill Paxton (Twister, Apollo 13) gives a career-topping performance as Bokky, a beguiling con artist whose skill with a scam is legendary among the Travellers — modern-day gypsies who make a good living swindling unsuspecting victims throughout the rural South. Bokky’s solo routine is interrupted by the arrival of Pat (Mark Wahlberg – The Fighter, Contraband), a young drifter from “the outside” who has returned to claim his birthright as a clan member. Although Bokky is nearly redeemed when he meets up with Jean (Julianna Margulies – The Good Wife, ER), both men fall under the spell of the outlaw gypsy Double D (James Gammon) and are caught up in a brilliant but deadly new scam that will put their loyalties — and their lives — to the ultimate test.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: While independent films flourish, they have nearly eradicated the scrappy B movie, of which this is an agile, enjoyable example.
Fresh: This fresh and interesting story about a tight-knit clan of Irish grifters in the rural South who make their living scamming is a ''con men on the road'' picture all the more welcome during a season of junky action thrillers...
Fresh: Like Paper Moon, this mostly easygoing comedy-drama has its charms, despite promoting a dubious morality that finds amusement in ripped-off victims.
Rotten: The film is just there on screen, better than watching a clock, better than contemplating mortality, an OK experience. There are movies like this. No sense in pretending otherwise.
