The Con is on!

With not only an amazing cast, it's also directed by the Coen Brothers. It looks like the Coens have seen the UK series Hustle and ran from there, giving their own spin on it!

Private art curator Harry Deane (Firth) devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England's richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.

BAFTA award winner Sir Tom Courtenay, Golden Globe winner Stanley Tucci and Academy Award© winner and veteran comedinne Cloris Leachman round out the cast.
