Goofs

During the Fairgrounds Racetrack scene prior to the start of the horse race, the track announcer says "The trotters are now in the hand of the starter, it's post time." This would be appropriate prior to the start of a trotting harness race, not a thoroughbred turf race which is depicted as happening live on the track. See more »

A convincing portrayal of a compulsive gambler
26 January 2016 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a compulsive gambler who is in fell debt. He hopes to make the money back on a road trip to various casinos, travelling with a young charismatic card player.

"Mississippi Grind" may be very realistic in the portrayal of a compulsive gambler. Ben Mendelsohn gives a very convincing and intense portrayal of the gambler. His expressions of exhilaration and desperation are very captivating, that I feel his emotions too. The scene where he loses the horse race towards the end is very memorable.

The plot is a rather sad story of how compulsive gamblers lose everything, from money to family and even their integrity. It is a captivating story.
