From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie 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.
"A Rough and glittering thing of beauty...a tumult of sensory extremes, of images and sounds, lurching shapes, braying voices, intensities of feeling and calculated craziness...The Safdies, two of the more playfully inventive filmmakers working in American cinema, won’t stop, either, which makes “Uncut Gems” fun” The New York Times
"Directed with relentless tension and diamond-hard intelligence by Josh and Benny Safdie (who earlier this year won directing honors from the New York Film Critics Circle), Uncut Gems is a thriller and a character study, a tragedy and a blast"
-Los Angeles Times
