CONFIDENCE

Starring Edward Burns, Rachel Weisz, Andy Garcia, Dustin Hoffman

Jake Vig (Edward Burns) has just swindled thousands of dollars from the unsuspecting Lionel Dolby. When Lionel turns up dead, it becomes clear that he wasn’t just any mark; he was an accountant for eccentric crime boss Winston King (Dustin Hoffman).

The first sign of trouble comes when Lily arrives for work with a head of freshly dyed red hair, a bad omen if ever there was one.

Against these diminishing odds, Jake will have to stay one step ahead of both the criminals and the cops to finally settle his debt. Rated R (for language, violence and sexuality/nudity).

But Peter wants nothing to do with her, prompting the loud and shocking Charlene to turn Peter’s perfectly ordered life upside down, jeopardizing his effort to get back with his wife and woo a billion dollar client (Joan Plowright).
