    Lohman in particular is effective; I learn to my astonishment that she's 24, but here she plays a 15-year-old with all the tentative love and sudden vulnerability that the role requires, when your dad is a whacko confidence man.

    The dialogue -- especially that between Roy and Frank -- crackles with wit and intelligence (a rarity in films these days).

    It’s a 21st-century version of "The Sting" for these so far rather unkind and ungentle times.
