Storyline Heading
Jim Bennett is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother in his wake.

As his relationship with a student deepens, Bennett must take the ultimate risk for a second chance...

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Drama Thriller - This gritty gambling drama is a big acting showcase for Mark Wahlberg, with all other actors being distinctly secondary, including prominently billed John Goodman, who only shows up in two scenes. Constant language and some violent and sexual content, plus general adult themes, make this film not for kids.
