Mississippi Grind got a decent reception at Sundance, with critics noting that Half Nelson filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck brought the spirit of the 70s to their movie.
Now the trailer has arrived.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Gerry (Mendelsohn) is a talented but struggling poker player about to be swallowed up by his unshakeable gambling habit. But his luck begins to change after he meets the young, charismatic Curtis (Reynolds). Gerry convinces his new lucky charm to hit the road with him, towards a legendary high stakes poker game in New Orleans. The highs and lows unveil the duo’s true characters and motivations, and an undeniable bond forms between them.’
The film is out in the US on September 24th.
