From Oscar®-winning screenwriters Joel and Ethan Coen and director Michael Hoffman comes the comedy Gambit. Curator Harry Deane (Firth) is an expert in fine art, but he’s equally accomplished in taking abuse from his boss (Rickman). That’s about to change. Pushed to the brink, Deane decides to show his employer, England’s richest man, that his real expertise is in the art of revenge. The plan – trick the avid art collector into buying a fake Monet painting with the help of an eccentric Texas rodeo queen (Diaz). The risks are huge, but so is the payback…though a finely-crafted con is only as flawless as its artist.
