Abstract: Casino (1995, USA) by Martin Scorsese Main Cast: Robert DeNiro; Sharon Stone; Company: Universal Pictures The movie is about the casino boss Sam Rothstein. It plays in the 70s when the gambling business in Las Vegas was mainly controlled by mafia like cartels. The other main protagonist is Nicky, who is a boss of a gang of criminals, robbing and stealing. Another important character is Ginger, Sam’s wife, who becomes an alcoholic. In the end she seeks help from Nicky and also start an intimate relationship with him. The plot could be describe as rise and fall of gangster and casino bosses. Scene: drugs mixed adults adolescent or children hard drugs nontransgressive in company 23:70-24:00: cocaine The marriage of Ginger and Sam is broken. Ginger ran away taking their daughter with her. Sam is then phoning with Lester (to where Ginger ran) and during that time Ginger is preparing some cocaine for her. She does that in front of her daughter, which looks a little bit like preparing something for, or showing something to her daughter. After the call also Lester uses the cocaine. Discussion: Probably there will be an outcry in the group, because a mother is using drugs directly in front of her own child. Clip: 29
