Gina Rodriguez in Kajillionaire

The best crimes take a lot of time and thought.

In Kajillionaire, it follows a con-family as they plan their next scam and swindle. Then a stranger enters their lives, who changes their lives.

The movie stars Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld, Across the Universe), Gina Rodriguez (Deepwater Horizon, Annihilation), Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water, The Visitor), and Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment, An Officer and a Gentleman). Miranda July (Me And You And Everyone We Know) directed and wrote the screenplay.

Here’s the official synopsis:

From acclaimed writer/director Miranda July comes a profoundly moving and wildly original comedy. Con-artists Theresa (Winger) and Robert (Jenkins) have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio (Wood), to swindle, scam, and steal at every opportunity. During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.
