Things I Love: The Brothers Bloom

This week I've just watched The Brothers Bloom. It's about two brothers who've grown up as con artists and what happens when they choose an eccentric, shut-in multi-millionaire as their mark. Who is the con and who is getting conned? Maybe it doesn't matter.
"A perfect con is one where everyone gets what they want."

The Brothers Bloom

Bloom: This is not an adventure story.
Penelope: What are you talking about?! It totally is!


Penelope: (to Bloom) Here's what we're going to do. We're going to live like we're living the best story in the whole world. Are you ready?

Penelope: A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells, the less you know.


Stephen: You were the only audience I ever needed.


Penelope: There is no such thing as an unwritten life, only a badly written one.

So much honesty for a story about professional liars.
Live life like you're living the best story in the whole world.
Plus, Adrian Brody is a dreamboat. No denying it.
