synopsis
FORFEIT explores the human traits of greed, obsession, and revenge. This clever and engaging heist flick tells the story of a man hell-bent on exacting vengeance on the people who have wronged him. Frank O'Neal (played by Billy Burke) appears to be readjusting to life back in his old neighborhood, including a reconciliation with his ex-girlfriend. We quickly learn however, that his motives are not entirely what they seem. Ultimately, his friendship with an overzealous televangelist places him on the brink of self-destruction. Andrew Shea's taut thriller features an impressive cast, including Sherry Stringfield (ER), Gregory Itzin (24) and Wayne Knight (Seinfeld).
