Two brothers on opposite sides of the law find their fates colliding in this explosive period crime drama from writer/director Guillaume Canet (Tell No One, Little White Lies). New York, 1974: Released from prison on good behavior, 50-year-old convicted killer Chris (Clive Owen) gets a second chance to go straight when he's invited to live with his younger brother Frank (Billy Crudup), a hot-shot cop who's never understood what their hard-working father Leon (James Caan) sees in his scofflaw sibling. But Frank hasn't given up on Chris yet, and in addition to helping his troubled brother find work, he also strives to repair Chris' fractured relationship with his ex-wife Monica (Marion Cotillard). Meanwhile, temptation soon gets the best of Chris, giving Frank no choice but to cast out his brother once and for all. Now it's only a matter of time before the two brothers meet again, and when they do, there will be hell to pay. Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, and Matthias Schoenaerts co-star.~Jason Buchanan
It is a thriller,pure thriller, I have always liked Clive Owen and I think this is his best movie yet. ANd the costumes and how they made it very real with the cars and the clothing every thing in the movie. VERY GOOD MOVIE>
I really liked this film. I have always liked Clive Owen, who put in a terrific performance, but Billy Crudup was very, very good as well. The rest of the cast did well, but the two brothers really shined.
I had never heard of this film until I rented it from redbox. I was really impressed with it! Got it in store for about $8! I was able to find a copy with the slipcover still intact! Zoe Saldana is HOT as usual in this film! Give it a watch!
