The Brothers Bloom
Something fun for our next Rialto Recommends. Several months ago we recommended Rain Johnson's debut feature Brick. Our recommendation today is his second film THE BROTHERS BLOOM starring Adrien Brody, Paul Rudd and Rachel Weisz. THE BROTHERS BLOOM are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they've decided to take on one last job - showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world. Entertainment Weekly said "The novelty here, and it's a good one, is that Johnson decorates and deepens the gamesmanship with tender shoots of family feeling." While the Washington Post said "A screwball comedy for the New Depression, THE BROTHERS BLOOM makes an abundant number of erudite references that mean almost nothing, and, like most con-man movies, it can't be trusted." THE BROTHERS BLOOM is streaming on Hoopla, Tubi, Pluto, YouTube, and IMDBtv or available to rent for a modest fee from RedBox, Amazon, Vudu and others.
