Published Jul 22, 2015Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the directorial team that brought us Half Nelson, are back with a new indie drama called Mississippi Grind.
Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn proved that he's the best burn-out in the game when he starred in the recent Netflix series Bloodline, and he turns in a similar performance here as a likeable dude whose balls deep in some gambling debts. He teams up with Ryan Reynolds, a human lucky charm, as they try to win back the money he owes.
Though the plot isn't exactly unique, the film looks like it has some excellent acting and solid directing. Watch the trailer for Mississippi Grind below.
