The Card Counter
"You’ll leave the film unable to stop thinking about its dimensions." —Cassie da Costa, Vanity Fair
"The solitary man returns in The Card Counter, a haunting, moving story of spirit and flesh, sin and redemption, love and death." —Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter, a thriller that tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions and featuring riveting performances from stars Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, and Willem Dafoe. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese (Schrader’s collaborator on Taxi Driver), The Card Counter features the veteran filmmaker’s signature style, plunging to the depths of his protagonist’s existential despair and rising to when he finds a surrogate family in the form of his agent La Linda (Haddish) and the teenager Cirk (Sheridan), searching for meaning after his soldier father’s suicide.
Tickets to these screenings are $12.75 and under. Cinema members pay only $8.
