Have you ever run away from home (or know someone who has)? If so, how did you manage to make a living?
This movie was great! I think I enjoyed it so much because it dealt with counterfeiting checks and dishonest behavior. Frank Abernathy is an extremely intelligent and troubled teen. When his parents get divorced, he runs away from home, but, he’s able to make a living with his shrewd mind and dishonest behavior. He poses as a Pan Am airline pilot, a doctor and a lawyer. He was able to con his way through these roles and he was just a teenager!
While conning his way through these occupations, Frank would create checks and cash them. He also charmed the women he met (like the bank tellers), engaging them in flattering conversations so that he could gain their trust.
I really enjoyed this movie because it was exciting and I really wanted to see if Frank would get caught by the end.
This movie was based upon a true story and it starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.
