High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story
Based on a true story, High Roller is a hard-edged drama about legendary card prodigy Stu Ungar, one of the youngest players ever to win Las Vegas' World Series Of Poker and to become a three-time champion.
Stu (Emmy award-winner Michael Imperioli of The Sopranos) had a meteoric rise through the back-room card parlors of New York City to the glamorous casinos of Las Vegas. A life of promise, though, was quickly wasted by an endless struggle with internal demons. His greed and obsession would ultimately pave the way to a stunning downward spiral into drugs, womanizing and high stakes gambling.
