Uncut Gems is set in the diamond district of New York City, where Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler is always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets which could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, he must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.
This looks great from the trailer, but I’m particularly looking forward to this because director brothers Benny Safdie and Josh Safdie made the recent, brilliant Good Time, with Benny Safdie and Robert Pattinson in the leading roles.
And I’d normally avoid an Adam Sandler movie, but when he makes a drama, such as Punch-Drunk Love, he can really excel.
Uncut Gems is released in the US on December 25th, but as of yet, there’s no UK date.
Also stars: Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, The Weeknd, Idina Menzel, Keith Stanfield, Eric Bogosian
