From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.
Part of Thrills & Chills, six thrillers with awesome electronic scores.
“It’s a film that is impossible to sit back and watch passively – a clenched-muscle collision of overstimulation.” Wendy Ide, The Observer (UK)
“[A] recklessly audacious and wildly accomplished blend of crime thriller, family melodrama, and sports drama.” Richard Brody, New Yorker
