Cons and Scams

Fake a death for fun and profit! Rig a popular game show! Sell a bunch of musical instruments to the citizens of a po-dunk town with no intention of providing instruction! These nefarious plots are the bread and butter of cinema's enduring fascination with con artists and scams.

The Selfish Giant

Directed by Clio Barnard

Childhood Drama - 91 Minutes - 2013

Surrounded by modern debris and with little use for school, two boys begin working for a local scrap dealer, acquiring copper and other useful materials using some less-than-legal methods. While they initially love the rush and the attention they get from the adults at the scrapyard, the boys gradually grow competitive and apart as each tries to impress their new stand-in father.
