We're only a week and a half into the new year, but things have already kicked off with a bang, especially in the entertainment industry. The movie hasn't even been released yet, but Uncut Gems on Netflix Canada is already generating a ton of buzz.\nAdam Sandler is an actor who's known to play quirky roles in subpar comedies (think Grown-Ups, Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy), but the 53-year old's latest project is anything but that. In fact, according to Digital Spy, it may just be the best work he's done in his career.\nUncut Gems is a movie about a charismatic jeweller from New York City named Howard Ratner (played by Sandler). In an attempt to secure a small fortune, Howard decides to pursue a side hustle in making high-stakes bets, but as time goes on, he realizes that living a double life isn't as easy as it seems.\nThe jeweller finds himself struggling to find a balance between business, family, and protecting himself as he continues to relentlessly pursue the money, which definitely comes at a cost.\nThe movie premiered in 2019 at TIFF and in select theatres on December 25, and so far it's earned an impressive score of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, the movie has yet to hit Netflix, which is where most of the general public will be able to stream it later this month.\nView this post on Instagram Unforgettable night at the #UncutGems LA premiere, thank you to everyone who came out in support.
