This is probably one of the best movies I have seen in quite a while. It is based on 6 MIT students and one bent professor who get caught up in card counting that takes them to the highest highs, to the lowest lows.
The movie is set around these six students, but one in particular who has his life laid out in front of him, except for one thing, the furnacing to the one school he has always dreamed of going to. A warped professor spots him and sees the opportunity to make even more money and give " Ben" what he needs to complete his goals.
Kevin Spacey is such a versatile actor, he pulled this off wonderfully, as well as did the entire cast.
It is a drama, a love story, a thriller, and the truth! If you have not seen this yet, I suggest you get it, you will not regret it.
