Directed and written by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, Focus is a refreshing and exciting film. It stars Will Smith – need I say more? Just kidding. This movie deserves far more than that; it also stars Margot Robbie, the babe who created media buzz after her performance in Wolf of Wall Street. But seriously, it is a tremendously entertaining film that combines all the elements of a good flick. Nicky, played by Will Smith, is an infamous con-artist for a business that was passed down through generations. He has a very White-Collar-esque vibe to him. Jess is the girl he falls for and they are both lovey-dovey and do what all notorious and rich con-couples do–make passionate love after raking in millions of bucks deceiving some poor lad. Think of them as a modern day Bonnie and Clyde. Despite magical romance, there are devastating consequences when something goes wrong. Be not afraid, Focus is a rollercoaster ride full of comedy and action that is going to leave anyone giddy and breathless. Catch it on DVD, starting June 2, or online! It is worth it.
