Movie Info

Two brothers kidnap a boozy gangster and try to hold him for ransom in this psychological thriller. Harold (Albert Finney) is lured from a saloon by Treat (Matthew Modine) to their squalid tenement. He and his reclusive and agoraphobic brother, Phillip (Kevin Anderson), have no idea Harold is a mobster, only that he looks prosperous. Harold is reminded of his impoverished youth when he sees how the brothers live, and he offers to help the aspiring young thugs.

Great performances and characters feel a bit imprisoned by the walls of the film frame.

A poignant movie that helps us to see that all moments are key moments and that those who are unable to accept love are lost forever
