Superb film at a superb price...
No one stays at the top forever.
Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese's riveting look at how blind ambition, white-hot passion and 24-carat greed toppled an empire. Las Vegas in 1973 is the setting for this fact-based story about the Mob's multi-million dollar casino operation - where fortunes and lives were made and lost with a roll of the dice...
In an era of over-the-top glitz, Sam 'Ace' Rothstein (De Niro), is riding high as front man for the Mob's multi-billion dollar Las Vegas operation. To protect their 'investment', the bosses send in Ace's boyhood pal - hot-headed enforcer Nicky Santoro (Pesci). It's a winning hand: Ace's brain and Nicky's muscle... until sexy wildcard Ginger McKenna (Stone), turns up the heat.
This gripping fact-based tale boasts extraordinary performances, a sizzling soundtrack and a dizzying look beneath the glamorous facade, beyond the closed doors and behind the eyes of the men and women whose fortunes - and lives - were made and lost with the roll of a dice.
Sharon Stone's performance so impressed the Academy that they granted her first and only Oscar (thus far) for a magnificent performance as the glamorous hustler, Ginger McKenna.
