Description

FRI FEB 28 *Double Feature* UNCUT GEMS 7:00 In one of 2019's indisputably great performances, Adam Sandler becomes Howard Ratner, an ambitious jeweler plying his trade in New York's busy diamond district. We follow Howard through the highs and lows of two emotionally fraught days as he attempts, repeatedly and desperately, to parlay a recent find of a rare black opal into a seven-figure gambling win. The Safdie Brother's have created a remarkable opus that is both grippingly intimate and startlingly cosmic, cringingly painful and wildly funny. (2019, 135 min, DCP ‘Scope) + THIEF 9:30 James Caan gives an intensely controlled performance as a fiercely independent professional jewel thief whose personal life code is complicated when he goes to work for crime lord Robert Prosky. Filmed largely at night on the streets of Chicago, Michael Mann’s neon-drenched feature film debut is loaded with his soon-to-be trademark hypnotic visuals and precise attention to detail. (1981, 122 min, DCP)
