Apple TV+ today releases its first major movie release of the year: the neo-noir thriller Sharper. Starring Julianne Moore, Sebastian Stan, John Lithgow, and more, the film revolves around the story of a con artist taking on the world of Manhattan’s billionaire elite. Here’s how to watch Sharper.
Sharper is a slick thriller, focusing on the story of a small-time scammer sets his ambitions on the chance to pull of a massive heist on the wealthy billionaires living in New York, stealing way more money than he has ever done before.
As teased in the trailer, “if you are going to steal, steal a lot”. But, in the twisty tale, it is not clear exactly who is getting taken advantage of until the end.
The film had a limited theatrical release on February 10, allowing Sharper to be eligible for industry awards recognition down the road. The film is out today, February 17, on the Apple TV+ streaming service.
