Ambitious and self-centred Mob lawyer Joe Morse (Garfield) plans to consolidate New York’s gambling rackets by systematically bankrupting the smaller operators with a big fix. But conflicted loyalties arise when he has to contend with his kindly older brother, low-level bookie Leo (Gomez), who wants nothing to do with the gangster-run big leagues.
A shining example of everything Hollywood falling into place, and a masterpiece of cinema.
