Mickey Prohaska is a small-time insurance agent looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is about selling a story - all he needs is a sucker willing to buy it. He hits pay dirt with a lonely retired farmer who is sitting on something much bigger than an insurance commission. But Mickey's attempt to con the old man spins out of control when a nosy, unstable locksmith with a volatile temper dramatically ups the stakes, trapping him in a spiral of danger, deceit and double-crossing.
Comedy (Dark) Crime Drama - While a bit comedic like their last film together, Little Miss
Sunshine, this new film featuring both Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin
is more of a dark comedy and far more violent and adult-oriented.
Fans of Billy Crudup should be amused by his change of pace
performance. Violence and language make the film inappropriate for

NY PostFull Review Good As an aging winter melts into a spring that threatens to expose dark secrets, Kinnear and director Jill Sprecher make you feel Mickey's squirming desperation, even if the ending feels like a cop-out.
