They're Stealing the American Dream.
|Since Wayne Malloy (Eddie Izzard) can't buy the American Dream, he's going to steal it! The Malloys are Travelers, con artists living one step ahead of the law, and now, together with his wife (Minnie Driver) and children, Wayne is pulling his biggest scam ever. They assume the identity of a family living a privileged life in an exclusive suburban development. But, with nosy neighbors, vengeful fellow Travelers and the authorities hot on their trail, can they possibly pull it off? The Riches is an engaging and offbeat drama infused with wickedly dark humor so original and captivating that to miss it would be a crime!|
This four disc collection includes all 13 episodes from Season 1 of The Riches!
"Unique and intoxicating! Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
"...a wildly clever and inventive serial drama, a show with limitless narrative possibilities for adventure, drama, and comedy. Adam Arseneau, DVD Verdict
"...a clever, oddball blend of comedy and drama...refreshingly different from the comedy-dramas that are usually aired on TV. James Plath, DVD Town
"...character-wise and performance-wise, it's frequently as good as anything on TV. Noel Murray, The Onion A.V. Club
Editor's NoteMinnie Driver and Eddie Izzard star in this well-received FX series based on the concept of what happens when a family of traveling con-artists finds its way into a wealthy suburban community, fooling everyone around them into thinking they belong while trying to convince themselves of the same thing. Driver plays Dahlia Malloy, a wife and mother who at the start of the series has just been released from prison for a crime her husband, conman Wayne (Izzard) committed. Understandably bitter, Dahlia self-medicates and steals to protect her children, ending up on the run from a scary crew of extended family. When a crazy coincidence gives Wayne and Dahlia the keys to a new life and a new identity, they seize it, mistakenly figuring life in the suburbs will be a piece of cake. Like a mixture of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, WEEDS, and Coen-brothers comedy, THE RICHES has the potential for wide appeal. This set contains all 13 episodes from the show's premiere season, including the pilot.
