Circus is a 2000 British crime thriller movie directed by Rob Walker and written by David Logan. It was released in the UK on May 5, 2000 and had its USA (limited) release on September 15, 2000.

Bruno (Brian Conley), a sadistic criminal, wants clever con man Leo (John Hannah) out of the way.
Leo and his equally clever wife, Lily (Famke Janssen), are up to something. So too is Julius (Peter Stormare): he hires Leo to kill Gloria (Amanda Donohoe), Julius's wife.
Leo does it, but then Julius shows up with the murder on tape, saying Gloria isn't his wife - it's blackmail. Leo's bookie, Troy (Eddie Izzard), is also closing in, wanting to be paid.

Bruno and Lily as well as Bruno and Julius have their own scams running, and Leo is their target. Maybe Leo can get Troy off his back, avoid Moose (Bruno's huge enforcer played by Tommy 'Tiny' Lister), send Gloria's corpse out of England, turn the tables on Bruno's murderous brother Caspar (Ian Burfield), and outfox Lily. Or is Lily his fox?
It's a three-ring circus.
