Matchstick Men: A reflection on love, trust and comeuppance

Have you ever cheated people or been cheated by the one you love most?

Have you ever thought about the feelings that everything you care about have just gone suddenly?

Do you believe comeuppance happens all the time?



Matchstick Men will tell you the answers and even more…



To me, it is one of the most wonderful movies directed by RIDLEY SCOTT. Amazing performance by Nicolas Cage, Sam Rockwell and Alison Lohman will attract you into the movie from the beginning to the end. The story line is interesting and dramatical: Roy (Nicolas Cage) and Frank (Sam Rockwell) are two excellent con men. They are successful in their jobs. However, Roy’s private life is unstable. He is extremely lonely and suffers from obsessive-compulsive agoraphobe until his long-absent 14-year-old daughter Angela (Alison Lohman) shows up. The clever and lovely girl excited his life and let him find the father-daughter love back. What’s more, Angela is a genius at crime and eager to learn the art of the con from her father…

When I saw Angela at the first time, I loved her so much. Such a cute and wild girl! It’s so fun and exciting watching the sweet time the father and daughter had together. It’s easy and happy at the beginning; however, good things won’t last long, especially when what you seeded before was a poison.

 It’s time for you to enjoy the show and think about your own life. As I mentioned before, the movie itself will tell you much more than what I can say.
