ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Visionary director Paul Thomas Anderson (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, INHERENT VICE) proves himself to be one to watch with this debut feature. A stranger (Philip Baker Hall, BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA) mentors a young Reno gambler (Oscar nominee John C. Reilly, THE SISTERS BROTHERS, CHICAGO) who weds a prostitute (Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE) and befriends a vulgar casino regular. "It's done with such intelligence and feeling, and such a brilliant cast, that it grips our attention from first shuffle to last bet" (Chicago Tribune).
