Adam Sandler’s latest film “Uncut Gems” is a crime thriller that tells the story of Howard, a New York City jeweler consistently looking for the next big score.

Throughout the movie, he makes a few high-stakes bets that don’t always work out well for him.

Co-directors and brothers Josh and Benny Safdie joined “City Lights” earlier this month to talk about “Uncut Gems.”

They began by explaining why the film took 10 years to make.

“Uncut Gems” opened Christmas Day.
