About the film:
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.
“Directed with relentless tension and diamond-hard intelligence by Josh and Benny Safdie, Uncut Gems is a thriller and a character study, a tragedy and a blast.”
—Justin Chang for The Los Angeles Times
