On the heels of their propulsive Good Time, the Safdie Brothers raise their game with another unhinged New York odyssey, this time with an electrifying Adam Sandler, proving that his performance in Punch-Drunk Love was no fluke.

In a rapid-fire, revelatory performance, Adam Sandler is Howard, a diamond dealer whose life is reaching a crescendo of manic desperation: his relationship with his wife (Idina Menzel) is imploding; he owes a hefty chunk of money to angry racketeers; and he’s getting in over his head in an ever escalating scheme to make a fortune by selling an Ethiopian opal to Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett (playing himself). Nothing goes as planned, of course, and that’s the fun and the terror of this wild ride that pushes viewers to the breaking point of pleasurable anxiety. 

“It's a bruising, desperate anxiety attack of a film that rips the rug out from under you when you least expect it. And, because it really cannot be said enough: Adam Sandler is on the form of his life.” – Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies 

Please note: Uncut Gems will screen without ads and the film will start at the advertised time.
