The Last Poker Game

Directed by Howard L. Weiner

USA | 85 minutes | 2017

In his final film, which earned critical acclaim at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, legendary Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau plays an elderly Jewish physician who moves into a nursing home with his ailing wife and strikes up an improbable new friendship with gambler and womanizer Paul Sorvino. While at first Landau feels that moving into the home is the end of the road, he soon realizes that he is in fact finding a whole new beginning. Landau and Sorvino’s friendship is challenged when a mysterious nurse claims that her biological father resides in the home. Without children of their own, they both jump at the chance to convince Angela, and themselves, that they are her father.
