From Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award®-nominated director of Bullhead, comes critically acclaimed crime drama THE DROP, available to own on Digital HD on 9th March and Blu-ray and DVD on 23rd March 2015.
Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), THE DROP follows Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy: Locke, Lawless) a lonely bartender at Cousin Marv’s; a neighbourhood bar in Brooklyn. Bob’s cousin, the eponymous Marv (James Gandolfini: The Sopranos), runs the business as a “drop bar”; laundering money through a covert scheme of funnelling cash to local gangsters. Under Marv’s heavy hand, Bob finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone awry when money intended for a Chechen gang is stolen from the bar by masked gunmen. The robbery is investigated by cynical police officer Detective Torres (John Ortiz: Silver Linings Playbook) and while Bob tries to forge a relationship with his neighbour Nadia (Noomi Rapace: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) he finds himself entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighbourhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
With an exceptional cast including the superb James Gandolfini in his last completed film role, THE DROP is a wonderfully directed and intelligent masterclass in crime drama. Don’t miss THE DROP when it lands on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD from 23rd March 2015.
