Story


"The Drop" is a new crime drama from Michael R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of 'Bullhead'. Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane ('Mystic River', 'Gone Baby Gone'), "The Drop" follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters - "money drops" - in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood's past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living - no matter the cost.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a potent, propulsive crime drama, gives us one more chance to salute the formidable talent of a remarkable actor..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..it's a mundane crime story that risks being a stupid one, owing to the dog-tussle subplot. But Hardy grounds the picture, never allowing it to slip into absurdity..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..fine performances, including Gandolfini's last, help compensate for a patchwork plot by first-time screenwriter Dennis Lehane..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
