(2018) Clever humor keeps this elaborate crime caper on pace as a recently released ex-con (Sandra Bullock) and her longtime partner (Cate Blanchett) bring together an eccentric fashion designer (Helena Bonham Carter), a jeweler (Mindy Kaling), a con artist (Awkwafina), an experienced fence (Sarah Paulson), and a computer hacker (Rihanna) to pull off a heist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual gala. Their target is a unique diamond necklace they must manage to convince Cartier’s to loan to a movie star (Anne Hathaway) for the event. Grown viewers willing to treat larceny as nonchalantly as do director and co-writer Gary Ross and his script collaborator Olivia Milch will also get an eyeful of glamour. Less easily sloughed off than the principal theft is a subplot involving the revenge-driven frame-up of the selfish art dealer (Richard Armitage) whose cowardice sent Bullock’s character to the slammer in the first place. A vengeance theme, a bedroom scene involving handcuffs, brief non-marital sensuality, drug use, a couple of profanities, at least one rough and several crude terms. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) HBO (cable)
