Editorial Review

Review: ‘Focus’ isn’t great, but it’s not trying to be, which is why it works

‘Focus’ pairs Will Smith and Margot Robbie in a stylish, sunny, utterly preposterous caper comedy.

Lawrence Newman (Macy) is an ordinary man who doesn't want to stand out in a dangerous world. Then, unassuming Newman and his sexy, outspoken newlywed wife (Dern) become caught up in a case of mistaken identity. Suddenly the unwitting focus of his neighbors' prejudice, Newman is faced with a choice- to go down as a coward or take a long shot at becoming the unlikeliest of heroes- and tell the truth.
