Tom Hardy stars in this gritty crime drama from Academy Award nominee Michaël R. Roskam (BULLHEAD). Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (GONE BABY GONE), THE DROP follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski through a covert scheme of gangster cash-funneling in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of Uncle Marv (James Gandolfini, in his final film performance), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.

CHILDREN 404 – Eye on World Issues

About

An essential and heartbreaking documentary which premiered at the prestigious Hot Docs film festival, CHILDREN 404 is an intimate look at the LGBTQ youth struggling against Russian leader Vladmir Putin’s anti-gay propaganda laws. In response to laws that forbid “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations to minors,” activist Elena Klimova created Children 404, an online forum for Russian teens who have been harassed and alienated by a community obliged to tell them they are sick, sinful, and abnormal. Despite risks to their own safety in this dangerous climate, two Russian documentarians collect their anonymous stories of humiliation, discrimination, and courage.
