Meet Roy and his ambitious protégé Frank, a couple of con artists. Grifters. Matchstick Men.
Business is good: the two run a successful, small-time scam.
But Roy's (Academy Award winner Nicholas Cage) personal life is a mess: Chain-smoking, obsessive-compulsive, and agoraphobic, with idiosyncrasies that threaten his criminal productivity, Roy requires a psychoanalyst just to stay in working order.
Now, much to his shock he discovers he has a 14-year-old daughter, Angela (Alison Lohman), who wants to know her father.
And as Roy and Frank (Sam Rockwell) develop a style of parenting with a unique spin, they realize that Angela has an interest and a knack for the family business as she earns her place as one of the Matchstick Men.
Catch Matchstick Men, Monday 28th May, 9.00pm on DUKE.
