The Color of Money picks up the life of "Fast" Eddie Felson, the pool shark expertly played by Paul Newman and last seen in 1961's classic The Hustler. Felson is now middle-aged, seemingly washed up and no longer competing - but after he spots talented but cocky young player Vincent Lauria and becomes his mentor, he begins a long journey back to the pool table. Director Martin Scorsese's understated film captures the moody smokiness of the hustler's world perfectly, and Newman was rewarded with the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of a man given a last chance at redemption.
Art imitates life with Mickey Rourke starring in this moving, dignified drama about a washed up wrestler making one final comeback.
