The cast was spot on! Ryan Phillippe's percolating frustrations was perfectly pitched as an FBI agent and Tom Pelphrey was a fearlessly likable con-man. You're rooting for them both at times, knowing they can't both win - but their performances made you feel for them both and want more of it. The entire supporting cast did a stellar job with their roles to improve the relationship between the viewer and the central characters, but not overpower the main story. I had never heard of the story of Jason Derek Brown before and didn't know much of Tom Pelphrey (but now I have to see him on Ozark!), but this is a solid feature from a first-time director!
