From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie (Good Time, Heaven Knows What) comes an electrifying crime thriller about a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score.

When Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler) makes a series of risky bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, 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.

"With Uncut Gems, the directors have definitely hit the big time, making a divisive but undeniably rowdy character study that rivals such heavyweights as Taxi Driver and Pi in its single-minded commitment to a certifiable head case."—Peter Debruge, Variety
