Ethan HAWKE, Vincent D'ONOFRIO, Seymour CASSEL
Ethan Hawke battles to make it big in the shadow of Manhattan in writer James DeMonaco's debut feature.
The lives of three men with their eyes on a bigger prize tragically intersect when blue-collar worker Sully Haverson decides to rob the safe of smalltime mob boss Parmie Tarzo to give his soon-to-be-born child a hope of a better future. Desperate to be remembered for something, Tarzo campaigns to save Staten Island Forest while deaf-mute deli worker Jasper Sabiano disposes of the victims of the mob boss's shadier activities.
Hard-hitting writer James DeMonaco (The Negotiator, Assault on Precinct 13) steps behind the camera and casts two-time Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke (Lord of War, Training Day) opposite Vincent D'Onofrio (JFK, Full Metal Jacket) in a duo that will make sparks fly. Hollywood veteran Seymour Cassel (Academy Award nomination for Faces) co-stars.
