Home / Now Showing / SYDNEY (HARD EIGHT)
Seasoned professional gambler Sydney (Philip Baker Hall) takes on a young homeless man (John C. Reilly) as his protégé after learning of his struggles to raise money for his mother’s burial. Enveloped by the pulpy world of Reno casinos, both men soon become involved in murder, prostitution and kidnapping – vices that are all the more ominous once it becomes clear Sydney is hiding a devastating secret. Paul Thomas Anderson’s thrilling debut feature contains wonderful supporting performances by Gwyneth Paltrow and Samuel L. Jackson and offers a fresh, original study of themes that later occur throughout the director’s body of work.
