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”).
Tye Sheridan made his debut at the age of 11 in Tree Of Life starring Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain. Since then he has appeared in other films like Mud, Joe, X-Men: Apocalypse and Ready Played One among others. Sheridan will soon be seen in George Clooney’s The Tender Bar with Ben Affleck on Amazon.
