Plot Summary

Hell's Kitchen on Ash Wednesday, 1983. Rumors are flying that Francis Sullivan's younger brother Sean, dead for three years, has reappeared. If he wasn't killed by rivals, then old scores still need settling, putting Fran and Sean in danger. An upstart is pressuring the local mob boss, who's Fran's protector; Sean's wife, who thinks she's a widow, has gotten on with her life, but Sean has come back for her. The parish priest, part of the initial deception, is frightened. Bad guys with guns are closing in. Can Fran get Sean and his wife out of the city, avoid a war between rival factions, and hold onto new-found morality? Will the cross of ashes on his forehead protect him?

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This time Mr. Burns is trying something in the Martin Scorsese street-realist mode, but his self-regarding sentimentality trips him up again. – Dave Kehr, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Despite the authenticity of the trappings, the film is overblown in its plotting, hackneyed in its dialogue and anachronistic in its style. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: With more swagger than Saint Pat on Snake Day, Edward Burns struts around 1983 Hell's Kitchen in search of a Sopranos audition. – Laura Sinagra, Village Voice, Mar 24, 2011

Rotten: An ambitious, guilt-suffused melodrama crippled by poor casting. – Lou Lumenick, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010
