The Broth­ers Bloom

The TV Guide - - TV MOVIES -

Choice, 8.30pm Star­ring Rachel Weisz, Adrien Brody. Like all the best ‘st­ing’ movies, The Broth­ers

Bloom keeps view­ers guess­ing all the way down the line. Two con men – Bloom (Brody) and brother Stephen (Mark Ruf­falo) – de­vised elab­o­rate hoaxes to get through their trou­bled child­hood in fos­ter homes. Years later, in what is meant to be a fi­nal ‘st­ing’, Stephen picks a lonely heiress as the mark and gets his brother to make her fall in love with him. Trou­ble is, a gen­uine ro­mance blos­soms be­tween them. There is far more to it though and The Broth­ers Bloom brims with off­beat laughs and touch­ing charm. ★★★★
