Burt Lancaster in Atlantic City, USA

on BBC One London

also starring
Susan Sarandon
Lou, an ageing crook with delusions about his past grandeur, works with increasing difficulty in Atlantic
City, USA. By chance, he encounters Dave, a hoodlum who has a small fortune in stolen cocaine, and together they decide to push the drugs. Unfortunately, the original owners have other plans.
Interwoven with this story is the bittersweet love affair between Lou and the beautiful
Sally, and a haunting portrait of a faded city.
