When those dog days of July come a-sweatin’, we reach for a cool and hilarious comedy caper. We cannot wait for The Con is On, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital July 24 from Lionsgate. The film is currently available On Demand.
This bold and cheeky film stars Oscar nominees Uma Thurman and Tim Roth as Harriet and Peter, a con-artist couple cooking up a jewel-theft scam in L.A. to pay off sexy-but-deadly gangster Irina (played by Maggie Q). Having squandered Irina’s loot one drunken night, Harriet and Peter escape to Hollywood, where they plot to steal a priceless jewel from Peter’s loopy ex-wife (Alice Eve) to repay the debt. The dazzling cast also includes Parker Posey and Sofia Vergara.
The fun is from the award-winning producer of Lee Daniels’ The Butler and Wild Card.
