Mississippi Grind, the new film from Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson), is a gambling movie – but not the kind that we typically see, where handsome men in suits roll up to Las Vegas casinos and win it all.
No, the road film, starring Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline) and Ryan Reynolds, is about the quieter corners of the gaming world, where normal – sometimes desperate – folks are just looking for a bit of luck.
In an exclusive clip above, you see just that kind of moment as Gerry (Mendelsohn) and Curtis (Reynolds) win big at a race track as they make their way down the Mississippi.
Mississippi Grind is available now on DirecTV and hits theaters on Sept. 25.
