Directed by Sydney Pollack
A gambler who trusted no one… A woman who risked everything… And a passion that brought them together in the most dangerous city in the world! From Sydney Pollack, the outstanding director of They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, The Yakuza, Three Days of the Condor, Absence of Malice, Tootsie and The Firm, comes this epic drama set in pre-Castro Cuba. High-rolling poker player Jack Weil (Robert Redford, The Natural) is trying to make one big score in 1958 Havana, a pleasure-seeker’s paradise on the verge of revolution. But his plan doesn’t include falling for Roberta (Lena Olin, Romeo Is Bleeding), the beautiful, enigmatic wife of revolutionary Arturo Duran (Raul Julia, The Addams Family). After Arturo is removed by the police, Jack is drawn closer to Roberta, who ignites a passion that threatens his last chance for the big score. The top-notch cast includes Alan Arkin (The In-Laws), Tomas Milian (The Big Gundown), Richard Farnsworth (The Grey Fox), Tony Plana (¡Three Amigos!), Mark Rydell (The Long Goodbye) and Dennis Farina (Manhunter). Havana received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score by the great Dave Grusin (Fuzz, The Milagro Beanfield War).
