It’s always a real treat when Adam Sandler steps away from the silliness of ‘Happy Madison Productions’ and takes on a serious role.
We’ve seen glimpses of brilliance from the actor in movies like Punch Drunk Love and The Meyerowitz Stories, and now it looks like we’ll see another great performance in the upcoming film, Uncut Gems.
The crime thriller was written/directed by the Safdie brothers, who amazed everyone with their beautifully twisted film, Good Time, back in 2017.
In this new film, Sandler stars as an obsessive New York jeweler turned gambling hustler. Critics who saw this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival have had nothing but positive things to say about it.
It currently sits at a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’ll hit theaters December 13, 2019.
