Joshua Mason, played by teen heartthrob Josh Hutcherson (JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND), is a troubled 16-year-old, abandoned by an addict mother and soon faced with life challenges far beyond typical teenage angst. Upon discovering the boy's incredible gifts as an artist, Every Campbell (Alfred Molina) introduces Mason to the lucrative world of art forgery. While in Carmel, California, a town rich with artistic history, Mason builds a relationship with a voice of reason, played by Lauren Bacall (THE BIG SLEEP), who encourages the boy towards artistic integrity over criminal luxury. Paired with co-star Hayden Panettiere (FIREFLIES IN THE GARDEN), Hutcherson's performance in THE FORGER will perpetuate the actor's young career into Hollywood greatness.
