Starring John C. Reilly, Diego Luna and Maggie Gyllenhaal CRIMINAL is about two con artists who try to swindle a currency collector by selling him a counterfeit copy of an extremely rare currency bill. The two- boyish, likable Rodrigo and the scheming, cynical Richard – meet by chance. Richard, who has cheated everyone he knows, including his siblings, is missing his partner, so he offers Rodrigo a job for a day.

    Rodrigo accepts because he has some savings, but needs more to pay his father’s gambling debts. Richard gets a call when an aging, ill ex-associate needs help to sell a forged treasury note to a businessman whose visa is expiring the next day, a wealthy man who sees a chance to turn a quick profit buying what he thinks is a stolen document. When the con men have to improvise, Richard asks Rodrigo to use his savings to set up the deal. Is Rodrigo being conned? CRIMINAL shows 10pm Friday 4th March 2011.
