With time running out, he must enter the criminal underworld and risk everything to keep from losing it all. John Goodman, Brie Larson and Academy Award-winner Jessica Lange star in the thrilling film critics are calling “gritty, intense and wholly engrossing.”**Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood

  1. Anyone else have to stop themselves from getting sick every time he gambled. What a horrible feeling. I like blackjack. I can play on $20 for hours. I see people walk up and put down thousands of dollars and see the despair on their faces. Playing for fun is one thing, but playing to make a living is another.

  2. I died to materialism and greed came out the other side a minimalist and at peace. Money and things should be kept in perspective. True moments of serenity are more valuable than the universe.

  3. "And theres going to be a moment when I want something again, when I wont allow myself to be seen in this condition. But its not now, and its not up to you or anything you or anybody else freaking says, okay?"
