SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS trailer
James and I had the opportunity to attend the premiere of SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS at the CineVegas Film Festival this summer. You can read James' review HERE and see some of our red carpet coverage HERE. I was excited to see this film because it features Steve Buscemi in a leading man role. He is one of those great supporting actors that are long overdue for a leading role.
SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS stars Buscemi as John, a compulsive gambler who is trying to follow the straight and narrow. After a losing streak has him down on his luck, he leaves his high-stakes life in Las Vegas for a more normal existence in Albuquerque, working for an auto insurance company. It appears things are looking up for him when he is up for a promotion at work, but a difficult insurance claim investigation puts him in more than a few trying situations.
The film was written and directed by first-timer Hue Rhodes. The impressive cast includes: Steve Buscemi, Sarah Silverman, Romany Malco, Peter Dinklage, Tim Blake Nelson, John Cho, Danny Trejo, and Emmanuelle Chirqui.
SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS hits theaters January 29, 2010. Click HERE to view the trailer.
