A charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score, makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.
After learning that his terminally ill wife has six months to live, a man welcomes the support of his best friend who moves into their home to help out. His impact on the whole family is much greater than anyone could have imagined.
Standard and unengaging drama with exceptional sound design and lead performance
Pretty much title. If you take out the sound design and Riz Ahmed there is nothing special about this at all. However, those two things do elevate it above an average film and the ending is also super effective. The theatre reacted very strongly to that section, myself included.
