The Atlantic City Story is a touching tale of two people who have run away to Atlantic City. One to escape her unhappy marriage and the other running away from his life in Philadelphia in hopes of hitting it big at the casino. Listen in as I review this touching drama from first-time director Henry Butash and starring Jessica Hecht, Mike Faist, Gary Wilmes, Nina Hellman, and Emily Donahoe.
Jane Carver is an unhappily married woman who runs away from home in a moment of crisis and goes to Atlantic City for the weekend. While there, she meets a young gambler and an unlikely bond grows between them. However, they soon realize they cannot run from their problems forever, and together they must find the strength to go on.
