Renowned writer and director Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter is finally hitting movie theatres this weekend and is not to be missed! This intense, dark tale about loneliness, isolation and redemption tells the story of William Tell, an ex-military interrogator turned gambler who travels from casino to casino, modestly working the poker tables and refusing to be recruited by gambling agent La Linda. When he meets Cirk, the troubled son of a man who served alongside him in the military, he sees it as an opportunity for redemption and atonement. So, he concocts a plan to mentor Cirk as an opportunity to forgive himself – and be forgiven in turn.  Now showing at a cinema near you.
