Production

The film was originally titled The Love Child of Andy Warhol and Yoko Ono, but by the time filming began in Toronto, the name was shortened to The Love Child. After being cast in the lead role, Rossif passed the script on to his father, Donald, who liked it enough to join the cast. Principle filming was underway by April 2009, and had wrapped by late July 2009. By January 2010, the title had become The Con Artist.

Plot

When Vince is paroled after five years in prison for a heist gone wrong, his dangerous and controlling former boss, Kranski, forces him back into a life of crime. Working for Kranski as a car thief, Vince finds solace in welding sculptures out of metal and old car parts in Kranski’s chop shop. When Vince’s raw and evocative sculptures are discovered by calculating art dealer Belinda, his chance for a new life as an artist emerges, as well as romantic complications with Belinda’s gallery assistant, Kristen. Caught between the pressure from Kranski and the demands of the art world, Vince has to cleverly maneuver his way out to become his own man and his own artist.
