Focus, Will Smith’s latest feature film, centers around veteran con-man, Nicky, and his female counterpart, Jess (played by Margot Robbie) as they swindle their way through New Orleans and beyond.  Although Smith plays in both comedies and dramas, Focus really encompasses the best of both worlds:  I went back and forth between sitting on the edge of my seat and laughing out loud several times during the feature.  I also enjoyed trying to figure out which characters were conning each other before the storyline gave it away!  Throughout, the acting was fantastic, the costumes were beautiful, and the storyline was engaging, albeit a bit unbelievable at times.  Certainly worth a second viewing, this film would appeal to anyone who enjoys a twisting plot and a good laugh.  Overall Rating: A-
