Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman and Jessica Lange star in The Gambler which can be seen on M-Net Movies Premiere DStv Channel 103 on February 12 at 20h00.

Double Academy Award winner Jessica Lange wooed critics with her portrayal of the long-suffering mother of an irresponsible compulsive gambler. It comes no fewer than 38 years after she entered the spotlight in 1976 with a Golden Globe-winning performance in King Kong.

A university professor’s world view – that life should be all or nothing – takes him to the brink of financial ruin and certain death. Even then, he remains convinced that he can turn his life around by risking all – even the lives of his loved ones – on one last big payout. The film was directed in 2014 by Rupert Wyatt.
