Chancer: Series 1 (Disc 1 of 4) (1990)
He's rude, arrogant, ingenious, unprincipled -- and utterly charming.
In the role that led to film stardom in Croupier and an Oscar nomination in Closer, Clive Owen is simply dazzling as Stephen Crane -- con artist, swindler, and purported savior of a struggling sports car company. Sacked from an investment bank after one dodgy deal too many, Stephen lands a job at Douglas Motors, a business distinguished by old-fashioned craftsmanship and plagued by decades of familial mismanagement. There he finds himself playing surrogate son to the family patriarch, confidant to the adulterous son-in-law, and lover to the beautiful but willful daughter. All the while, he fends off forays from his erstwhile boss (Leslie Phillips), a deliciously evil banker bent on recovering a bundle of swindled money. But, can Stephen keep his double-dealing past at bay?
In this complete first series, Chancer follows the fortunes of unforgettable characters pulled powerfully by love, sex, money, loyalty -- and, ultimately, identity.
