Disaffected Los Angeles lit professor Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) doesn't get his biggest charge from a good novel, but from frequenting the city's network of underground casinos. However, when his insatiable need for action lands him a quarter of a million dollars in the hole, finding an out before the bookies find him might be his biggest gamble. Gritty redo of the 1974 James Caan opus co-stars Brie Larson, Michael Kenneth Williams, John Goodman, and Jessica Lange. 110 min.
