Adam Sandler in First Trailer for Safdie Brothers' 'Uncut Gems' Film
"Please - give me another shot." A24 has unveiled an official trailer for the film Uncut Gems, the latest from filmmaking brothers Benny & Josh Safdie (aka the Safdie Brothers of Heaven Knows What, Good Time previously). Set in the diamond district of New York, Adam Sandler plays Howard Ratner, a jewelry store owner and dealer to the rich and famous, who must find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend. 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." Also with Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, Eric Bogosian, & Judd Hirsch. This just premiered to excellent reviews from the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals earlier this month. Looks incredibly intense and and a wild as hell trip around New York - really looking forward to seeing this.
