With huge thanks to our friends from 101 Films, this is your chance to win a copy of the recently release ‘The Grifters’ on Blu-ray
From director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons) and producer Martin
Scorsese, comes The Grifters, a taut thriller in which seduction and betrayal could lead to murder. When small-time cheat Roy Dillon winds up in hospital following an unsuccessful scam, it sets up a confrontation between his estranged mother Lilly and alluring girlfriend Myra. Both Lilly and Myra are con-artists playing the game in a league far above Roy, and always looking for their next victim. As Roy finds himself caught in a complicated web of passion and mistrust, the question is who’s conning who?
