The Gambler

The Gambler

The Only way out is All in.
  • Just keep his eyes off the cards ...

A remake of the 1974 film starring James Caan. A young man has a fondness for taking risks. Despite being an English professor, he is also a high-stakes gambler, who bets it all when he borrows from a gangster and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, he pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of a loan shark with a paternal interest in his future. As his relationship with a student deepens, he must take the ultimate risk for a second chance.
