Ty Sheridan is Cirk ( Kirk with a C) in Paul Schrader last film The Card Counter. He seems to play a side character but he’s not. And he tells us why. Sharing the screen with Oscar Isaac and Tiffany Haddish and an evil Willem Dafoe, he shows his craft without flaws.

The Card Counter: William Tell is an ex-military interrogator living under the radar as a low-stakes gambler. Tell’s meticulous life is thrown into disarray when he encounters Cirk, a young man looking to commit revenge against a mutual enemy. With backing from mysterious financier La Linda, Tell takes Cirk on the casino circuit to set him on a new path. However, he finds that the ghosts of the past will not release him so easily.
