FULL SYNOPSIS

Director [[Performer~P90460~Stephen Frears~stephenfrears]] ([[Feature~V184533~High Fidelity~highfidelity]], [[Feature~V326921~The Queen~thequeen]]) reunites with screenwriter [[Performer~P78835~D.V. DeVincentis~dvdevincentis]] to tell the seriocomic story of a kindhearted Florida stripper who becomes a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, but finds her luck running out after befriending a professional sports gambler with a jealous wife. Convinced that there's more to life than peeling off skimpy outfits for leering bar patrons, exotic dancer Beth Raymer ([[Performer~P485674~Rebecca Hall~rebeccahall]]) opts to try her luck as a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, and quickly makes the acquaintance of Dink ([[Performer~P76618~Bruce Willis~brucewillis]]) -- a man with a talent for making quick cash on winning sports teams. When Dink hires Beth to place wagers at multiple casinos, they quickly discover she's got a knack for numbers, and form a lucrative partnership. But all good things must come to an end, and when Dink's jealous wife Tulip ([[Performer~P36062~Catherine Zeta-Jones~catherinezetajones]]) catches wind of the relationship she insists that her husband fire his new good-luck charm immediately. Dejected, Beth takes flight to New York, where her winning streak comes to a sudden end after she goes to work for a shady bookie. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
