Movie Recommendation of the Week: The Sting

This is a shout out to all of our parents out there.   Well, at least the parents of people my age.   For all you younger people out there, one of if not the best duos in the history of cinema were Robert Redford and Paul Newman.   Handsome, great actors, and hilarious would describe these two charmers and when they were on screen it was magic.   Perhaps one of their best performances was in the movie The Sting.   It was made in 1973 and will forever remain a classic.   Here’s a quick bio:

In 1930s Chicago, a young con man seeking revenge for his murdered partner teams up with a master of the big con to win a fortune from a criminal banker.

Obviously that description doesn’t really give the movie enough credit or substance.  However, this was easily one of the best con men movies of all time.  Plus the cast was just filled with people you’d recognize but whose name you probably wouldn’t know (something I love in a movie).

Anyway, I don’t even want to give it away.  I want you guys to see this.  It’s brilliantly written, directed, and acted and of course, the Newman and Redford combo never hurt.   Check out the trailer after the jump…


It’s a must see folks.
