Us Rating: ***1/2

Class-action litigator Patty (a marvelous Glenn Close) and her protege Ellen (Rose Byrne) go after a Bernie Madoff-type swindler and his family in this chapter of the polished conspiracy drama. While previous installments ignited more quickly, the robust characters and shocking twists are enthralling. (Sony, $40)
