Uncut Gems

Crime Drama


 

A charismatic New York City jeweller with a crippling gambling addiction sets up the score of a lifetime, only for things to go awry.

"Uncut Gems" is a character study in making bad decisions. Once the film starts, it never stops. We're thrown into the deep end of our protagonist's life and the twists and turns that unfold keep us engaged and on the edge of our seats. A sparkling cast bring life and dimension to their characters, and our leading man is a standout as we watch him juggle the stresses of running a business, being a family man and harbouring a gambling addiction. A diamond in the rough.
