From the PR:
Set in prohibition-struck 1929 in an unnamed Eastern American city, the Coen Brothers’ gangster drama is inspired by the works of author Dashiel Hammett which will surprise and delight fans of the horrific Blood Simple and the manic Raising Arizona. In filming Miller's Crossing, the brothers assembled a team of old and new collaborators and a first-rate ensemble cast.
It's the compelling story of a friendship between the local political boss Leo (Four-time Academy Award® nominee Albert Finney – Tom Jones, Erin Brockovich), and Tom Reagan (Gabriel Byrne - The Usual Suspects, End of Days), the ‘man behind the man’.
The men’s friendship is severed when Leo and Tom both fall in love with the same woman, Verna (Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden – Pollock, Mystic River). Tom joins ranks with Johnny Caspar (Jon Polito – Barton Fink, The Singing Detective), Leo's foremost enemy and rival for political power, and a bloody gang war erupts.
The linchpin between them all is Verna’s brother Bernie (John Turturro – Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Mr Deeds) who crosses and double crosses all parties. Will Tom sell out to a friend? Is Verna still Leo’s girl? Can Johnny muscle in? Or will Bernie turn the tables on his friends and family?
This DVD includes an insightful featurette with esteemed cinematographer and long-time Coen brothers collaborator Barry Sonnenfeld (Raising Arizona, Blood Simple), a stills gallery and interviews with Byrne, Turturro and Harden.
