Movies: Flag Day

A trailer has been released for Flag Day, based on Jenifer Vogel's 2004 memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father's Counterfeit Life, "recounting her fractured relationship with her father, criminal and con-man John Vogel," Variety reported.

Directed by Sean Penn, the movie features Penn and his children, Dylan Frances Penn and Hopper Jack Penn. The cast also includes Katheryn Winnick, Eddie Marsan, Josh Brolin, Norbert Leo Butz, Jayden Rylee, Regina King, Cole Flynn, Beckam Crawford, Bailey Noble, James Juce and Dale Dickey.

Flag Day recently premiered at Cannes, "where it earned a four-minute standing ovation and sparked awards buzz for Dylan Frances Penn," Variety noted. The film opens in limited U.S. theaters on August 20, from United Artists Releasing.
