Croupier

91' - 1998 - Crime, Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Mike Hodges Composer: Simon Fisher-Turner With: Clive Owen, Kate Hardie, Alex Kingston
Jack Manfred struggled for years to escape from the shadow of his buccaneering father. Originally from South Africa, he has a girlfriend, Marion, who adores him more than he does her, and a strong desire to become a writer rather than follow dad into the gaming business. After blowing a commission to write a soccer novel, Jack gets a job at a casino on his fathers recommendation, and is again hooked on the profession after the first spin of the wheel. His professionalism wins him high marks with his boss, but trouble looms in the shape of Jani, a high-roller who makes eyes at him across the blue baize and later inveigles him into helping her shady associates rob the joint. Jack, meanwhile, is turning all his experiences into a novel called “I, Croupier.”
