Now a major motion picture from Fox Searchlight Pictures, directed by Michael R. Roskam, screenplay by Dennis Lehane, and starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini.
The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski through a cover scheme of funelling cash to local gangsters — ‘money drops’ — in the underworld of Boston bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv, Bob finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighbourhood’s past where friends, families and foes all work together to make a living — no matter the cost.
A moving, gripping thriller, from Dennis Lehane, acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Shutter Island, Gone, Baby, Gone and Mystic River, The Drop will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
