The Drop

October 21, 2014

Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini in THE DROP.

Directed by: Michaël R. Roskam

Written by: Dennis Lehane

Cast: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd

Rating: R

Running Time: 106 minutes

Tom Hardy’s understated performance as an unassuming Brooklyn bartender is his best performance to date. Complimenting Mr. Hardy is James Gandolfini, the former owner of the bar, and Noomi Rapace, the love interest. The film is methodical in its pacing (some may say slow) and well directed by Michaël R. Roskam. The title of the film refers to local gangsters using bars as “a drop” to funnel cash.

Grade: A-
