British actor Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) headlines this crime drama that sees the late James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) in his final role.

Hardy stars as a lonely bartender who finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone wrong after helping funnel cash to local gangsters via the underworld of Brooklyn bars – which brings attention to his heavy-handed employer and cousin Marv (Gandolfini).

This leads to an investigation that digs deep into the New York neighbourhood’s past where friends and family work together to make a living – no matter what the cost.

Co-stars Prometheus’ Noomi Rapace, with a screenplay from the writer of Mystic River.
