Four buddies go through the struggles of mid life
17 April 2001 | by goya-4See all my reviews

In this mostly unknown HBO production, Four friends who gather for their weekly poker game (played by Busey, Carradine, Rubinek, and Mancuso) go through a harsh night as they try to struggle and cope with the problems facing them in their lives. Their friendship is the bond that holds them together. A very impressive drama, presented almost as a stage production. Basically one set and four actors. was one of HBOs first forays into films.. catch it if you can find it. 8 of 10
