Barry Levin­son’s 1996 crime drama is a com­pellingly dark and hard-hit­ting study of in­sti­tu­tional abuse.

Brad Pitt and Ja­son Pa­tric lead as two friends who plan to get even with the school guards who raped them and mem­bers of their child­hood gang 15 years be­fore.

Kevin Ba­con, Robert de Niro and Dustin Hoff­man also star.

The film is based on Lorenzo Car­caterra’s 1995 novel of the same name.

‘Shakes’ Car­caterra, Thomas ‘ Tommy’ Mar­cano, Michael Sul­li­van, and John Reilly are child­hood friends in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City in the mid-1960s.

In the sum­mer of 1967, their lives take a turn when they nearly kill a man af­ter pulling a prank, and are sent to a boys’ home.
