Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn star as an unlikely pair of gamblers who forge a bond during a road trip to New Orleans where they hope to continue a recent winning streak in Mississippi Grind. Along the way, they reconnect with old flames, are confronted by loan sharks and end up on the losing end of some ill-advised bets. Sienna Miller, Analeigh Tipton and Alfre Woodard also star. Pic is written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
