Headlines Uncut Gems Features Adam Sandler as a Jeweler and May Be His ‘Best Work Ever’ (with Video) It hits theaters today. Published 11 months ago on December 12, 2019 By INSTORE Staff Share Tweet Uncut Gems, which features Adam Sandler as a jeweler, hits theaters today, and critics say it might his best work yet. In a review for Entertainment Weekly, Darren Franich calls Sandler’s performance “loud and meaningful, hyperbolic yet terribly human.” In the film from Josh and Benny Safdie, Sandler plays Howard Ratner, described on the movie’s official website as “a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score.” “When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win,” according to the site. Franich gives the movie an A-, noting that Sandler “exudes the self-lacerating melancholy familiar from his acclaimed dramatic work in Punch-Drunk Love and The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).” In a headline, Entertainment Weekly says the film may be Sandler’s “best work ever.” The New York Times, meanwhile, rates the movie as a “Critic’s Pick.” Reviewer Manohla Dargis writes: “It doesn’t seem to add up to much — a little man lives his life — but this is just enough. It’s easier to admire than to love, and I hate the ending, but the Safdies clearly like working your nerves.” Watch the trailer below.

She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.” You may like Meet the Royal Chain Heroes September Winners 81 US Jewelry Retailers Closed in the 3rd Quarter Citizen Watch America Donates $100,000 to Jewelers for Children Promoted Headlines JYE’S International is Seen in All the Best Cases The Sylvie Collection Knows What Women Want Sylvie Collection From Chain to Casting, National Chain Group Does It All National Chain Group Advertisement Latest Trending Videos Press Releases2 hours ago New PGI-Commissioned Study Offers Retailers Insights Into How to Ease Customers’ Concerns Over COVID During the Holiday Season Press Releases6 hours ago Accutron Lights Up Empire State Building Celebrating 60th Anniversary Press Releases6 hours ago Industry Experts Gather for Collaboration on Ethics and Sustainability in Gold and Diamond Enterprise Big Survey1 week ago These Are the Top Watch Brands of 2020, According to INSTORE’s Big Survey Big Survey1 week ago The Guy Who Bought 13 Rings, and Other Tales of Serial Engagements Photo Gallery2 days ago 12 Photos That Show Off the Wow Factor at Thollot Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in Colorado Sponsored Content1 week ago A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic?
