Focus movie quotes follow what happens when one successful con man's game is thrown off by a beautiful blond. The romantic comedy was written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Focus opened in theaters on February 27, 2015.
In Focus, Nicky Spurgeon (Will Smith) is an accomplished con man who has build up quite a successful and well known career in the game. Nicky meets Jess Barrett (Margot Robbie) and takes her under his wing after seeing potential in her. All is going well until the two get a little closer than Nicky would like, specifically romantically, leading Nicky to leave her.
Years later, the two run into one another when Nicky is involved in a long con with an international race car owner (Gerald McRaney and Rodrigo Santoro). While Jess swears that she's on Nicky's side and too is conning the billionaire, in a business like Nicky's where loyalty and trust are non-existent, it's hard to know on which side she truly lies.Focus opens in theaters alongside a handful of other highly anticipated movies such as Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Kingsmen: The Secret Service, McFarland, USA, and Fifty Shades of Grey.

Nicky: "There's two kinds of people in this world. There's hammers and there's nails. You decide which one you want to be. There's no room for heart in this game. It will get you killed."Nicky gives Jess a choice on how she wants to live her life. She can be the hammer or the nail. It's her choice, but she needs to leave her heart out of it either way.Should this be higher or lower?

Nicky: "There's a science to getting people to trust you and then you move in for the kill. It's all about emotion, connection."Should this be higher or lower?
