Croupier Movie Trailer
Plot Summary: Jack Manfred is an aspiring writer going nowhere fast. To make ends meet, and against his better judgement, he takes a job as a croupier. He finds himself drawn into the casino world and the job gradually takes over his life; his relationship with girlfriend Marion begins to deteriorate. One gambler in particular catches his attention: Jani, whom he starts to see outside of working hours – a serious violation of casino rules.
Jani is down on her luck; under pressure from her creditors she approaches Jack, asking him to be the inside man for a planned heist at the casino. Jack carefully considers the odds; it all looks so simple, but even a professional like Jack can’t predict the cards he will be dealt.
Quotes from Croupier
Jack: Hang on tightly, let go lightly.
Jani de Villiers:
Are you a believer in astrology?
Jack: No. But then, I’m a Gemini, and Geminis don’t believe in astrology.
Jack: Gambling’s not about money… Gambling’s about not facing reality, ignoring the odds.
