"Hope costs nothing."

“We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.” ― Veronica Roth, Divergent

          With a screenplay by acclaimed writer Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River ) and an incredible international cast featuring the captivating Swedish actress, Noomi Rapace ( Dead Man DownThe Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), the UK's remarkable Tom Hardy (Warrior, Inception) and the late superbly talented James Gandolfini (The Soprano's)  THE DROP is one of the most anticipated films of 2014.  Michael R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of Bullhead  exposes the dark, seemingly hopeless underworld of Brooklyn gangsters in his new crime drama opening September 12th. THE DROP captures the despair of an isolated bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through his own neighborhoods dangerous scam of illegally funneling money to local bar mobs  or "drops". Together, Saginowski himself along with his intimidating, protective employer/ cousin Marv (James Gandolfini) find themselves caught up in a crippling heist.
     THE DROP is based on a story Lehane created called "Animal Rescue" which was actually the original title of the movie. A secondary sinister story line unravels a plot of  rescuing tortured and abused animals or mainly the adorable puppy you see in the photo and preview above.  Rated R for mature audiences,  clocking in at 1 hour 46 minutes, Fox Searchlight has limited theater release for enthusiastic fans but hopefully this cinematic payoff will drop in a neighborhood near us all!
