In this clip, exclusively released to The Playlist, Mickey, played brilliantly by Hoffman, pitches a sure thing bet on a horse to his friend played by John Turturro. The film, which is set in a fictional Pennsylvania suburb, winds through the experiences of an ensemble of characters after the death of a young man. Christina Hendricks plays the distraught mother who has lost her son and Hoffman her husband who attempts to keep the details of the matter a secret until a reporter (Richard Jenkins) comes snooping for the truth.
