Half Nelson filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are back with a new movie that’s gotten decent notices on the festival circuit and is now heading towards cinemas.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) is a talented, but struggling poker player about to be swallowed up by his unshakable gambling habit, when his luck begins to change after he meets the young, charismatic Curtis(Ryan 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.’
