Even a second-tier Patricia Highsmith adaptation is worth a look for her admirers. Witness this screen treatment of Highsmith’s 1964 novel of three compromised Americans overseas – a fake “tour guide” hustler shortchanging tourists in Athens (Oscar Isaac) and his two marks, a professional con man on the run (Viggo Mortensen) and his partly innocent wife (Kirsten Dunst). A little crook trying to rob a big crook. The trick that director-screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive) never quite pulls off is conveying the trademark Highsmith mental gymnastics going on inside the characters’ heads. But all three lead actors’ performances are perfectly in keeping with the author’s spirit of general jaundice, and the Greek scenery is pleasant. A different shade of noir (98 min.).
