    The Irish Mob in New York
    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 128 mins
    Retail Price: £12.99
    Release Date:

    There`s a dark side to Manhattan noted for its crime, hardened drinking and brawling. Its Irish and Mafia community call it home, but to anyboby else it`s Hell`s Kitchen. Having been away for several years, Terry Noonan (Sean Penn) is reunited with his gangland friends, the ruthless Jackie Flannery (Gary Oldman) and his brother Frankie (Ed Harris), the Kitchen`s most powerful racketeer. Terry grew up in Hell`s Kitchen, he`s streetwise and knows the rules.

    But returning as an undercover cop to the squalor of his childhood haunts leads him deep into a dark underworld of deceit, corruption, betrayal and murder. He`s been assigned to put Frankie Flannery out of business forever and if he makes one false move he won`t even live to regret it. Complete with stylistic borrowings from Coppola and Scorsese, Phil Joanou`s State of Grace is a powerful underworld thriller.
