Confidence Trailer (2004)
Jake Vig (Burns), a sharp and polished grifter, has just swindled thousands of dollars from the unsuspecting Lionel Dolby with the help of his crew: Insideman Gordo (Paul Giamatti); shills Miles (Brian Van Holt); Big Al (Louis Lombardi); and two corrupt LAPD officers - Whitworth (Donal Logue) and Manzano (Luis Guzman). But when both Lionel and Big Al turn up dead, it becomes clear that Lionel wasn't just any mark; as Jake soon learns, he was an accountant for eccentric crime boss The King (Dustin Hoffman).
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Jake offers to repay "The King" (Dustin Hoffman) by pulling off the biggest con of his career. The mark: Morgan Price, a banker with deep ties to organized crime. With so much riding on the outcome, Jake decides to bring in a brash, brunette pickpocket named Lily (Rachel Weisz), who joins the crew in a complex scheme involving corporate loans, creative accounting, wire transfers and off-shore accounts.
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. To make matters worse, Jake also must contend with his old nemesis, FBI agent Gunther Butan (Andy Garcia), Morgan Price’s henchman Travis (Morris Chestnut) and a double-crossing partner. Against these diminishing odds, Jake and his crew will have to stay one step ahead of both the criminals and the cops to finally settle their debt.
