Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Michael R. Roskam's crime drama The Drop, adapted from a short story by Dennis Lehane who also penned the film's screenplay, stars Tom Hardy as Bob Saginowski, a bartender at a Brooklyn drinking establishment run by his cousin Marv (James Gandolfini). On his way home one night, Bob rescues an injured puppy that's been put in the garbage of a woman (Noomi Rapace), and adopts the dog and begins dating the woman. Meanwhile, the bar is robbed, causing Bob and Marv possibly lethal grief with the bar's Chechin owners. As Bob tries to put everything straight, his new girl's psychotic former boyfriend comes on the scene. The Drop screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
