Synopsis: The quirky, crazy tale of two Brothers named Bloom (Adrian Brody) and Stephen (Mark Ruffalo) who, from a young age, become adept confidence men.  With the help of their multi-faceted companion Bang Bang (Rinko Kikuchi), they set out to bilk a lonely, wealthy heiress named Penelope (Rachel Weisz).  But things become complicated with when sensitive brother Bloom starts to fall in love with their latest mark.

Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer): In the first scenes of the film we see the young Brothers as they move from foster home to foster home, landing in a small town where Brother Stephen sums up the town as having only one of everything.  Included in this inventory is one cat, which is actually a small orange tabby kitten who, through some unknown circumstance as explained in the narrative, only has one leg.
