Tag: "Edward Norton"
A movie about cops: bad cops, good cops, and morally ambiguous cops. Shot in a gritty, handheld HBO style, the film focuses on an Irish American family of cops and the scandal that engulfs them all. We get dad cop (John Voight), brother cops (Edward Norton and Noah Emmerich) and brother-in-law cop (Collin Farrell). This cozy cop family is torn apart when a shoot-out at a drug-dealer’s leaves four of their comrades dead. Returning from cop limbo to investigate, Ray Tierney (Norton) discovers police corruption involving his brother-in-law Jimmy Egan (Collin Farrell). Ray’s incessant thread pulling starts to unravel the lives of his family and of his NYPD comrades.
