"Atlantic City is a sophisticated fairy tale, beautifully acted and beautiful to behold; it is as funny as it is touching." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

Nominated for five Academy Awards, Burt Lancaster is Lou: a has-been numbers runner passing himself off as a retired hit-man in order to impress trainee croupier, Sally (a young Susan Sarandon). When Sally’s estranged husband turns up unexpectedly with drugs stolen from the mob, Lou sees a last chance to be the man he never was.
