Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems is the most exhilarating movie experience of the past year. ” Observer (UK)

Sandler. New York. Black market jewel industry. Basketballers. Serious Sandler!
The Safdie Brothers (GOOD TIME) bring us another wild, brilliantly frenetic film that will leave you on the edge of your seat… UNCUT GEMS.

In New York City’s chaotic and corrupt diamond market, the gemstone dealer and gambling addict, Howard Ratner (Sandler), is owing money to almost everyone, including his brother-in-law, Arno.
A serial adulterer, incorrigible gambler, and all-around con artist, Howard thinks he can finally get out of the tight spot when he gets his hands on a block of rare Ethiopian black opal–the means to clear his ever-rising debts. But, the star Boston Celtics player, Kevin Garnett, has already taken a shine to the precious uncut gem.

UNCUT GEMS reaffirms The Safdie Brothers as masters of anxiety-inducing cinema — and proves Adam Sandler remains a formidable dramatic actor, with a stellar cast that matches his game.
