Uncut Gems

“This wild, intense, propulsive ride by Indie filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie—with an amazing Adam Sandler at its center—was one of the surprise sensations at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, thrilling programmers and public alike.   It’s sure-handed, energetic filmmaking at an incredibly high-level, by the up-and-coming Safdie brothers about to hit the big-time.” – JBFC Programming Director Brian Ackerman

From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie (Good Time) 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.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"Uncut Gems emerges as real gem itself, a sparkling comedy-drama about a compulsive gambler and risk-taker who never knows when to quit"
Todd Haynes, The Hollywood Reporter
"Dizzying, but engrossing and entertaining, Uncut Gems is a glorious film that showcases Adam Sandler at his finest."
Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
