Two-time Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman and two-time Emmy winner Dennis Franz ("NYPD Blue") deliver tour-de-force performances as volatile small-time hustlers in this edgy, electrifying story of trust, betrayal and loyalty gone dangerously awry. "American Buffalo" is a riveting study in human virtue and vulnerability from Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Mamet ("Wag The Dog", "The Edge", "The Untouchables") and director Michael Corrente. For down-and-out junk dealer Don (Franz), life goes from unlucky to unbearable when he discovers that the rare, buffalo head nickel he just sold for $90 is worth ten times as much! Refusing to let himself be out-swindled, Don enlists the help of a young protege (Nelson) in a scheme to steal the coin back. But their plans are suddenly altered by the intrusion of Teach (Hoffman), a disturbingly aggressive would-be thief who badgers Don into cutting him in on the heist--a decision that carries explosive consequences for everyone involved. factory sealed with small tear on shrink wrap.
