NFSA Restores: The Cheaters

NFSA Restores: The Cheaters

The daughter of a professional grifter tries to change her ways when she falls for the son of one of their victims, however her father talks her into one last score. Paulette McDonagh’s newly restored feature– the first feature directed by a woman in Australia – enjoys a live accompaniment by Jan Preston and a discussion on the dynamic McDonagh sisters from NFSA curator Nathan Smith.
