Original Theatrical Date: September 6, 2002

Academy Award winners Robert De Niro and Frances McDormand star in this true story of a man who, as a cop, must bring a criminal to justice—but, as a father, must find a way to save his son.

While investigating the murder of a surfer, New York City police detective Vincent LaMarca (De Niro)—whose own father was executed for murder—discovers that his estranged son (James Franco) may have committed the crime. Now LaMarca will put his life on the line to do right by both his family and his profession.
