Starring: Eric Bana, Drew Barrymore, Debra Messing, Robert Duvall, Robert Downey Jr.
Director : Curtis Hanson
New romantic drama set in the world of high-stakes poker in Las Vegas.
Billie Offer (Drew Barrymore) is a young singer from Bakersfield with more heart than talent. Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) is a poker player whose emotions at the table often undermine his exceptional skill, especially when he is heads up with his father, poker legend L.C. Cheever (Robert Duvall), the man who abandoned his mother. A poker showdown is imminent.
The one aptitude Billie and Huck seem to share is a knack for reading people - the difference is what they do with that gift. While Huck's instincts enable him to take advantage of his opponents at the poker table and expertly avoid both emotional connections and long-term commitments in his personal life, Billie uses her intuition to see the emotional truth of those around her and sympathize with their pain. When these two meet, the real game begins.
If Huck is going to win Billie's heart, he must learn to play cards the way he has been living life and live his life the way he has been playing cards.
