All In: The Poker Movie (2012)
Why has Poker become so popular? Is the Poker boom just a fad, a trend, or is it now a permanent part of our culture in a way it never was before. What does poker say about who we are, how we live and what we dream of being? What does the game and the aura around it say about us as a people? How does our desire to play poker, the way we play it and our belief that we can win, shape our identity as individuals and as a nation? This documentary explains what happened within poker and in the world to allow the game to have this unexpected renaissance. It explores the relationship between poker and the American Dream and why, for so many people, playing poker represents the belief that the American Dream still exists in our nation and around the world.
