Overview
Anjelica Houston, John Cusack and Annette Bening star in this acclaimed hit where seduction and betrayal could lead to murder.

When small-time cheat Roy Dillon (Cusack) winds up in the hospital following an unsuccessful scam, it sets up a confrontation between his estranged mother Lilly (Huston) and sexy girlfriend Myra (Bening). Both Lilly and Myra are ruthless con-artists playing the game in a league far above Ray...and always looking for their next victim. The question soon becomes who's conning who as Ray finds himself caught in a complicated web of passion and mistrust.
