In the turbocharged heist comedy Logan Lucky from director Steven Soderbergh, West Virginia family man Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum) leads his one-armed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) and hairdresser sister Mellie (Riley Keough) in an elaborate scheme to rob North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway. Further complicating the already risky plan, a scheduling mix-up forces the thieves to execute the job during the Coca-Cola 600, the track’s most popular NASCAR event of the year. As they attempt to pull off the ambitious robbery, the down-on-their-luck Logans face a final hurdle when a relentless FBI agent (Hilary Swank) begins investigating the case. 

For filmmaker J.D. Dillard, Sleight came out of a desire to look at the seemingly-different worlds of magic and crime and develop an original premise which would weave the two together in a unique genre-bending film. Dillard made Sleight for $250 000, and he shot it in 16 days, and during the first 5 weeks of its release, the film spun its own magic at the box office and raked in $3,930,990. A young street magician is left to care for his little sister after their parents passing and turns to questionable activities to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets in too deep, his sister is kidnapped and he is forced to use his magic and brilliant mind to save her. Trailer
