Synopsis: Follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters - "money drops" - in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv, Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood's past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living - no matter the cost.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

It’s sort of understated, the score. It serves the characters. Director Michael Röskam had a composer in Belgium that he was working with, but the studio wasn’t crazy about the score. The movie is really a slow burn, and if it’s not set up really carefully, with expectation and a dramatic sense of what’s to come, it might not quite make it there. So the studio was very conscious of that, and my first challenge was to score that Super Bowl sequence. They wanted that scored first because there were so many different scenes cut together and the score had to thread them together, so I worked on that and it became the same music as the opening. Fairly simple, a small chamber orchestra and some electronics.
