USA | 135 minutes | R | DCP | Dir. Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie

Howie Ratner (Adam Sandler) is once a successful New York gems dealer whose gambling addiction has left his family and career in shambles, and him hundreds of thousands in debt. Always looking for the next big bet, Howie thinks he finally hit it big when he discovers a rare uncut rock of Ethiopian gems, with a very interested high-profile buyer. But the closer Howie gets to finally winning big, the more he is forced to realize he can't keep running from the consequence of his actions.

"'Uncut Gems' is a fairytale written by the hand of capitalism, where the mystical highs are followed by crushing blows -- and there's always a price to pay," - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)

"It's a breathless journey that captures the exhilaration and the hopelessness of living life on the edge. It's a gamble that pays off, and then some," - Adam Graham, Detroit News
