Plot Synopsis:

Based on the true story of the largest one-man bank fraud in Canadian history, Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Talented Mr. Ripley), Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting) and John Hurt (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) star in the coolest, smartest, most stylish thriller of the year!

Dan Mahowny (Hoffman) is a mild-mannered bank manager with a nasty gambling habit and a job that gives him access to a $20 million account. When a major losing streak leaves him busted and unable to cover his losses, Mahowny develops an ingenious plan to play the bank against the casino. But with time running out and the odds stacked against him, obsession becomes compulsion and the thrill of the bet is quickly replaced with a primal desire to stay in the game. "Engrossing, wryly funny and strangely poetic!" - Glenn Kenny, Premiere
