The new film from the Safdie brothers is set in a rich district of New York City in which the diamond industry is particularly prominent. There, Howard Ratner, a jewelry store owner who moves around that world, is the man in charge of dealing with the rich and famous people of the town. His comfortable and profitable lifestyle comes to a crossroad when he gets involved in a risky business play because of his girlfriend who is also his top seller. After suddenly losing the merchandise, Sandler's character will have to find a way to pay this debt. 'Uncut Gems' is directed by the brothers Benny and Josh Safdie ('Good Time', 'Heaven Knows What') and is written by them along Ronald Bronstein ('Good Time', 'Heaven Knows What', 'Frownland').

I. Tales'), Idina Menzel ('Frozen', 'Glee', 'Water'), Eric Bogosian ('The Good Wife', 'Billions') and Judd Hirsch ('Modern Love', 'Padre Made in USA'), among others.
