“Beautifully acted by performers who appear to have grown up on the city’s sidewalks in the heat and hopelessness of an endless midsummer.” —NY Times

Based on the true story of a Brooklyn bank robbery gone wrong, Lumet’s Oscar-nominated film is one of the all-time great New York movies, one of the best examples of 70’s gritty populism and one of the funniest, most tense and ultimately heartbreaking experiences you’ll have in a theater.
