Heartbreakers

Synopsis:
Sexy con artist Max Connor has created a perfect scam: she'll marry eligible bachelors, deny them sex, and then discover them in an uncompromising position with another, younger woman - leading to hefty annulment settlements. But Max's sex-starved husbands don't know that the other woman is actually Max's 22 year-old daughter Page, who's in on the con. Page wants independence, but when Max finds out the IRS wants back taxes, she convinces Page to come to Palm Beach for one last job. All goes according to plan, until Page breaks the most important rule: she falls in love.

Inventing Avi

Synopsis:
a zany comedy of theatrical manners, Inventing avi grapples with questions of authorship and identity as two sisters 'of a certain age'-one a rich producer and the other, a diva of the stage-collaborate on a hit play from a sexy Israeli writer. the play seems autobiographical, but the story is actually stolen from a place closer to home than either sister could ever imagine.

Palm Beach

Synopsis:
PALM BEACH is an American musical fable set in the screwball world of 1930's. Liz, a biracial showgirl desperate for financial security, has passed herself off as a Brazilian coffee heiress in order to wed into the wealthy Fitch family - only to find her that her ex-husband, Max, is posing as one of the Fitch family servants so that he can write a socialist exposÚ on the excesses of the upper class. Will Liz and Max be able to keep one another's secret -- especially when they're still in love with each other? Will Liz's handsome new fiancÚ, Lance, be able to keep certain secrets of his own now that he plans to marry? And how will all of this effect the Fitch family's place at the pinnacles of industry, politics and society? PALM BEACH is a brash musical comedy that asks how far people are willing to go to make sure they have a place at the American table.

Thomas Crown Affair, The

Synopsis:
Call it the price of success, but billionaire Thomas Crown has too much time on his hands. In a valiant effort to fight off boredom, he's taken to looting priceless works of art from the world's greatest museums just for the kick of it, and no one seems able to stop him -- except, perhaps, for sexy insurance investigator Amanda Lee, a woman who's not about to let her company underwrite a rich playboy's pastime. Will Amanda crack the case before she falls prey to Thomas Crown's charms? Will Thomas Crown be able to con someone as smart as Amanda? And will either of them end up having to face their worst fears by actually falling in love?
