SYNOPSIS In this lively, freewheeling road movie, Emmy Award®-nominee Ben Mendelsohn plays Gerry, a talented but down-on-his-luck gambler whose fortunes begin to change when he meets Curtis (Ryan Reynolds), a younger, highly charismatic poker player. The two strike up an immediate friendship and Gerry quickly persuades his new friend to accompany him on a road trip to a legendary high-stakes poker game in New Orleans. As they gamble their way down the Mississippi, in riverboat casinos, racetracks, bars and pool halls, Gerry and Curtis experience both incredible highs and dispiriting lows, ultimately forging a deep and genuine bond that will stay with them long after their adventure is over.
Reminiscent of classic 1970s American Cinema, Mississippi Grind is an unforgettable journey featuring two characters who—flawed as they may be—are always worth rooting for. It’s a film about friendship, addiction, regret, family, and the paths we sometimes unexpectedly find ourselves on—told with empathy, humor, and a remarkable light touch by acclaimed filmmakers Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden (Half Nelson, It’s Kind of A Funny Story).
Mississippi Grind stars Ryan Reynolds (Woman in Gold, Buried, The Proposal), Ben Mendelsohn (“Bloodline,” The Place Beyond the Pines, Animal Kingdom), Sienna Miller (American Sniper, Foxcatcher), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love., Warm Bodies) and Alfre Woodard (“State of Affairs,” Twelve Years a Slave). The film is written and directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck (It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Sugar, Half Nelson). Producers are Jamie Patricof (The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine, Sugar, Half Nelson), Lynette Howell Taylor (Big Eyes, The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine, Half Nelson), Ben Nearn (The Way Way Back, Begin Again), and Tom Rice (The Way Way Back, Begin Again). Director of photography is Andrij Parekh (Blue Valentine, Half Nelson) Production designer is Jade Healy (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, The Sacrament).
