The Gin Game Reviews

James Earl Jones and Cicely Tyson are in their glowing prime.
The New York Times
James Earl Jones is a treasure! Cicely Tyson is astonishing!
Watching them on stage is a sheer honor.
Associated Press


Weller Martin (James Earl Jones) and Fonsia Dorsey (Cicely Tyson) meet on the porch of their nursing home and strike up a friendship, with Weller teaching Fonsia how to play gin rummy. As they play, they share stories about the lives they led in the outside world. But when Fonsia wins every hand, Weller becomes increasingly frustrated, until their gin games and conversations become a battleground, with each player exposing the other's failures, disappointments and insecurities.
