Manufacturer Description

It's the shrink vs. the shark in the ultimate mind game! Starring Oscar (r) nominee* Lindsay Crouse ( The Insider ) and Joe Montegna ( The Godfather III ) as an unlikely team of conartists, this "witty and devious" ( Time ) psychological thriller is Oscar (r) nominee** David Mamet's directorial debut. It's an "extraordinary" ( Newsweek ) and "thrilling funhouse" ( New York Pos t) of mental gamesmanship that will keep you guessing until its exciting end! When a suicidal patient reveals that his gambling debt has him at the end of his rope, dedicated psychiatrist Margaret Ford (Crouse) enters into the shadowy underground world of gaming to help him out. At a seedy casino, she boldly confronts Mike (Montegna), the con man who holds her patient's markers. Duped into a high-stakes poker match, Margaret becomes intoxicated by Mike's mastery, as he both cheats at the game and charms her. She quickly falls for him, turning a blind eye to the fact that he's a swindler who can't be trusted.
