For those who’d like to see the movie, it is available on Sky which you can start streaming when you call the Sky customer services phone number, but we’re here to give you some information about it before you see it.
The story takes place in 1991 in New York City. Tommy (played by Michael Pitt) is a small-time crook, while Rosie (played by Nina Arianda) is his lover, and they have two things in common – the love for each other and several criminal records. The criminal records come from a time when they were caught robbing a flower shop on Valentine’s Day.
Thinking that it’s time to go straight, Rosie takes a job at an agency for debt-collecting, and she convinces Tommy to come with her. However, Tommy finds something more interesting to do instead of the new job, as he attends the trial of John Gotti, the boss of the Gambino Family. In this trial, the hit man of the Mafia – Sammy Gravano offers testimony that has the power to bring down the world of organized crime.
The truth is that Tommy is fascinated by the mob ever since he was a small child and saw his father receive a beating by a local gangster. When he hears in court that there’s a club owner by the Mafia where no guns are allowed, he gets a big idea – to rob the place as soon as he can.
It is the start of his adventure along Rosie, something like Bonnie and Clyde, where they rob the mob’s owned clubs. It’s something that allows them to move in together, now having enough money, but this is also something that attracts the FBI and a good reporter who presents their story on the first page of the newspaper.
However, in one of their raids, they discover something that everyone wants – a secret so powerful that could get them killed. The crime-family head orders his men to scare the couple, but once this secret is discovered, it is a decision that he regrets. Now, everyone wants to know what they have – the police and the FBI, the reporter, but also the crime-family head who taught all his secrets are safe.
The two characters – Tommy and Rosie are caught between the mob contract that was on their head and the law, and their life depends on who will get to them first.
