Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader’s (“Taxi Driver”, “First Reformed”) THE CARD COUNTER. Told with Schrader’s trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions, and features riveting performances from Oscar Isaac (“Ex Machina”), Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip”), Tye Sheridan (“Mud”) and Willem Dafoe (“Spider-Man”).
