From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie (Good Time) comes an electrifying crime-thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweller 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.
This recklessly audacious, thrill-ride of a film cements the Safdie brothers as the next big things in American cinema, and presents an incredible, exhilarating turn for Adam Sandler’s career.
