Eight years ago Russell Crowe made his directorial debut with The Water Diviner, a war movie and family drama all rolled into one. Reviews were a bit mixed, and it’s taken this long for Crowe to launch his sophomore effort, the high-stakes gambling film Poker Face that debuts next month.
Crowe directs, stars, and co-writes the film as a tech billionaire who offers his closest friends the gamble of a life time. But to win big, they’ll have to give up the thing they hold most dear.
Also in the cast are Liam Hemsworth, RZA, and Elsa Pataky. Matt Nable, Jacqueline McKenzie, Lynn Gilmartin, and Daniel MacPherson.
Poker Face opens in theaters on November 16th, followed by digital on November 22nd.
