Director: Damian Nieman Cast: Stuart Townsend, Gabriel Byrne, Thandie Newton



Shade, the first feature film from real-life card shark Damian Nieman, who wrote and directed the picture, stars Gabriel Byrne and Thandie Newton as a duo of con artists looking to beat the "Dean" (Sylvester Stallone), a legendary card shark, in a high-stakes poker game. Their first step is hiring two fellow tricksters -- Jamie Foxx and Stuart Townsend -- to provide the smooth talking and to procure the necessary funds. Unfortunately, Larry (Foxx) blows his hand and finds himself with 85,000 dollars worth of debt owed to a local crime boss. Shade premiered at the 2003 CineVegas film festival and also features Dina Merrill and Melanie Griffith.

Shade 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I thought this movie was pretty good and definitely worth a watch. As i said the movie isn't very accurate in terms of poker. I guess in the poker world Shade takes place in you can simply win the hand by betting more then the other person has in chips. This is not the way it plays in real life. I haven't quite figured out why they would have done this????
