Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) is a talented but struggling poker player, about to be swallowed up by his unshakable gambling habit, when his luck begins to change after he meets the young, charismatic Curtis (Ryan Reynolds). Gerry convinces his new lucky charm to hit the road with him towards a legendary high stakes poker game in New Orleans, and an undeniable bond forms between them.
Also starring Sienna Miller, 'Mississippi Grind' is a bittersweet road movie about friendship and the refusal to give up - even when the odds are stacked against you.
