Abstract:
New York City, November 1988. Bobby Green is the manager of a Russian nightclub owned by Marat Buzhayev. The club is frequented by gangsters like Buzhayev's nephew Vadim. Despite Bobby's hedonistic and amoral lifestyle, he is committed to his girlfriend Amada. Bobby has a secret, however, which he guards closely. His brother is Police Captain Joseph Grusinsky and his father, Bert, is a legendary Deputy Chief. Bobby's strained relationship with his father and brother is tested when Bert warns his son that the police mean to clean up the drugs and Bobby will have to have to choose a side. After Joseph is badly wounded in an assassination attempt, Bobby finds that he can no longer remain neutral. When he discovers his father could be next, Bobby realizes they will only be safe when Nezhinski and his organization are destroyed, so Bobby and Joseph join forces for an all-out assault.

Summary

Summary

Set against the backdrop of the bloody battle waged between New York City cops and the Russian mafia in the 1980s, director James Gray's period drama tells the tale of an emerging club manager whose family ties to law enforcement make him a target for the city's most dangerous criminals. Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) manages one of Gotham's hottest clubs, but being in the club scene often means turning a blind eye to blatant criminal activities. Realizing that his career -- and perhaps his life -- could come to a sudden end if anyone discovers that his father, Bert (Robert Duvall), is the deputy chief of police and his brother, Joseph (Mark Wahlberg), is a rising star on the force, Bobby struggles to keep that sensitive information from everyone except his devoted girlfriend, Amada (Eva Mendes). Russian kingpin Vadim (Alex Veadov) is a ruthless criminal who is willing to permanently silence anyone who dares cross him -- regardless of whether the person is a stranger on the street or a lifelong member of the family. When the Russian mafia declares all-out war against the NYPD, conflicted Bobby is forced to choose between his life of luxury and the family that he has worked so fervently to separate himself from. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
