★★★★■ IT’S a fine line be­tween com­edy and tragedy and this ‘‘ dram­edy’’ based on a true story has a large por­tion of both. It’s the best Jim Car­rey has been for years, star­ring as a gay cop-turned-con­man who falls in love with an in­mate ( Ewan Mcgre­gor) while im­pris­oned and when they both get out, he goes about his dodgy ways try­ing to make a lav­ish life for the both of them. Cer­tainly a film with flaws, but it squeezes in a whole lot of emo­tion, farce, odd­ness and beauty too.

Ex­tras: ★★ ½ Press jun­ket in­ter­views with the ma­jor play­ers and a mak­ing-of.
