Default Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1780862/

I saw this at a local Film Festival yesterday night and it is awesome! A well-made film that really goes into team dynamics and the issues with trusting others!

It was actually made by these kids:

I guess since they are literally banned everywhere they decided it'd be fun to charge $1,000 to teach people to count!

Holy Rollers follows the rise of arguably the largest and most well-funded blackjack team in America-made up entirely of churchgoing Christians. While they succeed in taking millions from casinos, how will they manage to find a place for faith and God in the arena of high stakes gambling?

Watch trailer -

I get spammed all the time by these Blackjack Apprenticeship boys. Now they are using Christianity to profit off card counting. I find it disgusting!

It definitely isn't playing in any major theaters - mostly just film festivals from what I understand.

You ask me why it is that I count cards? For the greater glory of God! zg
