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.

“Sandler is so good, so committed and so watchable that, despite everything – Howard’s irrationality, a rogue’s gallery of unpleasant characters, the foreboding of a bad, bad end – you can’t take your eyes off the screen, which Sandler seldom vacates.” – Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post
