After watching the trailer for Uncut Gems I get the feeling that we might see a break in Adam Sandler’s streak of marking high grossing garbage comedies and instead turn his acting chops to something a little more serious. This makes me excited not only because Sandler is a good actor when he puts his mind to it, just look at Reign Over Me and Men Women and Children, but also because this is an A24 film and given their recent run of successful quirky and entertaining films such as Midsommer, Hereditary and The Witch.
When will I go see it?: Dependent on Theatrical release, opening week
