"[McQueen] conveys a wistfulness and a sense of mystery."
A rising cardshark challenges a veteran player for the chance to be known as "The Man." Set in the swampy hedonism of New Orleans during the Great Depression, the card game is a gritty exploration of the manly sport of stud poker. As the men battle across the card table, the upstart realizes that someone is forcing the honest dealer to help him win.
