The Card Counter

By Paul Schrader


William Tell, a for­mer ser­vice­man who became a pok­er play­er, leads a soli­tary exis­tence on the casi­no trail, run­ning away from the dark­ness of his past.

As he sets his sight on win­ning a major pok­er tour­na­ment, Tell takes Cirk with him on the road, decid­ed to lure him away from the vio­lence that he knows well from his pri­or life…
