The film, written by Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth, is adapted from Jennifer Vogel’s memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life. Dylan Penn plays Vogel across two decades as she comes of age while navigating a fraught relationship with her beloved, career criminal father, played by Sean Penn. Sean Penn’s son Hopper Jack Penn plays the brother, and Katheryn Winnick is the mom.
