This first-rate thriller has a top-notch cast

Boast­ing ter­rific per­for­mances, this grip­ping crime thriller cen­tres on a blue-col­lar Brook­lyn bar that some­times serves as a Mob money drop. Tom Hardy’s lonely bar­tender works here for his bit­ter cousin James Gan­dolfini, but his res­cue of a bat­tered puppy fate­fully draws him into the lives of Noomi Ra­pace’s wary wait­ress and her abu­sive ex-boyfriend Matthias Schoe­naerts. It’s a gritty ur­ban noir mixed with a fa­ble-like story of sin and re­demp­tion.
