Rebecca Hall rolls dice with movie "Lay The Favorite"

Sundance: Bruce Willis and Rebecca Hall take Vegas

PARK CITY, Utah — I think the fairest way of summarizing what I have to say about the new Stephen Frears movie “Lay the Favorite” is that people watching it on airplanes next fall will be pleasantly surprised by it. Anchored by an amped-up performance by <a class="fplink fp-657346" href="/Rebecca+Hall+1">Rebecca Hall</a> that you’ll either find endearing or massively irritating, along with a genial supporting turn from <a class="fplink fp-37882" href="/Bruce+Willis+1">Bruce Willis</a>, this is a mid-level crowd-pleaser, superficial light entertainment delivered by professionals. There are worse things. If you hear people struggling to compare “Lay the Favorite” to Frears’ 1990 hit “The Grifters,” pay no attention.
