Schrader wrote and directed “The Card Counter,” a revenge thriller about a gambler who attempts to guide a young man out for revenge against a mutual enemy. The cast includes Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan and Willem Dafoe.
The story follows Tell (Isaac), whose spartan existence on the casino trail is shattered when he is approached by Cirk (Sheridan), a vulnerable young man seeking help to executive his plan for retribution on a military colonel (Dafoe). Tell sees a chance at redemption through his relationship with Cirk, but keeping him on the straight-and-narrow proves impossible and drags Tell back into his dark past.
“The Card Counter” is Schrader’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated “First Reformed,” a drama starring Ethan Hawke as a Protestant
