Abstract: Owning Mahowny (2003, CAN) by Richard Kwietnowski Main Cast: Philipp Seymour Hoffman, Minnie Driver Company: Alliance Atlantis Communication Dan Mahowny has a gambling problem. He works in a banc and uses the money from some accounts for his gambling. His girl friend tries to help him, but she does not succeed. In the end the police catch Mahowny. Scene: gambling male adults cards table games Transgressive solitary 00:11:35-00:12:29 Mahowny is in a casino. We can see other people playing and seeming to have fun. M. instead looks very serious, does not want anything to drink. Only the experience of gambling is enough for him. As he seems not to enjoy the game – there is not any emotional reaction on his face – it is pretty clear that this scene will be considered as showing addiction. Nevertheless here M. seems to still have the competence to play. Clip: 256
