Is the Brothers Bloom based on a true story?
The Brothers Bloom was based on a screenplay by American screenwriter and director Rian Johnson.

He quits and moves to Montenegro. Three months later, Stephen finds Bloom and convinces him to execute one final con. Bloom reluctantly agrees.

A very funny and intelligent comedy. The Brothers Bloom is a shining comedy with a wonderful cast. It’s an unusual film which in some ways reminds one of Wes Anderson’s work. However, it’s much more entertaining than any of Anderson’s films. Leading the picture are Mark Ruffalo and Adrien Brody. They’re both excellent as the two con men brothers.
