We Own the Night

Synopsis: Brooklyn, 1988. Crime is rife, especially drugs and drug violence. A Russian thug is building his heroin trade, while everyone laughs at the cops. Brothers have chosen different paths: Joe has followed his father Bert into New York's Finest; he's a rising star. Bobby, who uses his mother's maiden name, manages a club. Bobby too is on the rise: he has a new girlfriend and a green-light to develop a Manhattan club. Joe and Bert ask him to help with intelligence gathering; he declines. Then, Joe raids Bobby's club to arrest the Russian. From there, things spiral out of control: the Russian puts out a hit on Joe, personal losses mount, and Bobby's loyalties face the test.

Bobby!

Bobby, are you in there with Amada?

Bobby!

- It's Jumbo.

- I'll be out in a second, Jumbo.

You gotta come out.

There's chicks dancing naked right

in the bar, in the lobby. Unbelievable.

- We gotta go.

- What?

- Bob!

- We gotta go.

Oh, f*ck, I forgot.

Bob!

F*cking animal.

I gotta ask Mr. Buzhayev

if we can take the night off.

I love you.

I'm gonna run across the street.

You meet me at the car, okay?

- Okay. Go.

- Amada...

...I'm the luckiest man on the planet.

If I died right now, I'd be happy.

Hey, Mr. Green,

thanks for hooking me up, man.

How are you?

- Hey, Bobby.

- Hey.

You got the best club in Brooklyn.

Just wait

till I take over Manhattan, baby.

Hey, do me a favor. Get them

a couple of drinks, all right?

Hey, baby, give me my purse.

I'm meeting the family tonight.

I don't want Coco paying

for his shit tonight.

Not after that little mix-up

we had last weekend, ladies.

- All right.

- Bye.

Bye, Amada. Good luck, girl.

Take it off! Take it off!

Hey, get the f*ck down here!

Hey, you! Get the f*ck down!

Calm down. Let's give them space.

Good looking out, Jumbo.

No problem, Bob.

Oh, what the f*ck?!

- Don't strain yourself.

- You got it.

Looks like everything's under control.

I'll take my break.

I didn't do nothing!

You're bleeding all over the place.

Go home.

- Freddie, take him home.

- I didn't do nothing.

Go easy on them, Jumbo.

I'm going across the street to see

the boss. Bring my car around.

- You got it. I need you to come...

- Be right back.

Hi, Kalina. Look at you.

You wanna go with me to

the club, huh? Do a little dance?

- Hey, everybody!

- Hey, Bobby.

- Hey, Mr. Buzhayev, how are you?

- Look, she got the watch.

Oh, yeah, it's great. I told you.

He's the best.

- Yeah. Yeah.

- I know deals.

Digital.

Yeah, it's great. Hey, listen.

I gotta go do something tonight...

...but Freddie will watch the place,

make the night drop later.

Good. So how is my club doing?

- Everything's fine.

- Good.

For me? Just this one.

Amada tells me I put on 5 pounds

every time I come over here.

I'm telling you,

you guys are fattening me up.

- Good?

- Excellent.

Always. Real good. Excellent.

Listen, Bobby...

Next week you come by, we talk.

We talk about plans for you.

We like what you do

at the club very much.

- Yeah? All right.

- Yeah.

- Good.

- Something more?

More? I just said I can't eat it.

I can't even eat this.

I can't have another bite.

What are you doing to me?

No, no, no, Amada's waiting.

I have to go.

You're too good to me.

Why do I deserve this?

- No, I gotta go.

- Where? Where you run off to?

It's my bike. Don't!

- Keep being brave, okay?

- Thank you.

Thank you.

- Here comes the right. Watch the right.

- Catch.

- Keep... Keep it up. Keep the guard...

- Careful.

- Sorry, babe. Keep...

- Joseph.

- All right, hey. Hey.

- Joseph.

- Hey, quit fooling around.

- Did he bag it?

No, he never did. His gun jammed,

so he started crying.

That's terrible. A nine-point?

- Joseph, come on.

- Pop's calling. Look...

...we'll go to Metropole,

cut loose a little.

- You got it.

- Come over here.

Gotcha.

Get your picture taken.

It's your big night.

- We took them already.

- The more, the better.

- Get your face out there.

- Stevie, come here.

The P.C. will see this in the magazine,

all right?

- All right.

- Get used to it, it's good. Come on.

- Good.

- Thanks, chief.

Go over there to Mommy,

all right?

It's almost 11.

Where's your brother?

If he comes at all, he'll come late,

Pop. You know him.

Baby.

There's cops all around.
