Danger. Power. Seduction. Welcome to Las Vegas 1973. Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci star in director Martin Scorsese's riveting look at how blind ambition, white-hot passion and 24-carat greed toppled an empire.
In an era of over-the-top glitz, Sam 'Ace' Rothstein (De Niro) is riding high as frontman 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 wild card 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 a roll of the dice.
