This stylish, star-studded caper comedy, directed by James Haslam, follows con-artist couple Uma Thurman as Harriet and Tim Roth as Peter, as they cook up a jewel-theft scam in L.A. to pay off sexy gangster Irina (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.
