Trailer : Rob the Mob

The trailer for the new Raymond De Felitta film, starring Michael Pitt, is online.

Michael Pitt (“Boardwalk Empire,” Seven Psychopaths), Tony Award® winner Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris, Broadway’s “Venus in Fur”), Academy Award® nominee Andy Garcia (The Godfather: Part III, Ocean’s Twelve) and Emmy® winner Ray Romano (“Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Parenthood”) star in Rob the Mob, a thrilling and poignant crime-thriller about two lovers whose audacious heists of Mafia social clubs result in a discovery that could forever change the face of organized crime in America. Directed by Oscar® nominee Raymond de Felitta (City Island, Bronx Cheers), the film is based on the true story of Thomas and Rosemarie Uva.

New York City, 1991. Small-time crooks TOMMY (Pitt) and ROSIE (Arianda) have two things in common: a crazy-passionate love for one another and—after they’re caught robbing a florist on Valentine’s Day—prison records. Trying to go straight, Rosie lands a job at a debt-collection agency and persuades Tommy to join her. But soon Tommy is skipping his shifts to do something much more interesting—attend the landmark trial of Mafia hit man Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, whose graphic testimony could finally bring down flamboyant Gambino-family boss John Gotti.

Tommy’s fascination with the mob is deeply personal; when he was a boy, he saw his father suffer a brutal beating beat at the hands of local gangsters. So when he hears Sammy name a Mafia-owned social club where no guns are permitted, he has an idea: Why not rob the joint? And so begins a series of Bonnie-and-Clyde-style stickups of mob hangouts around the city, with Tommy wielding an Uzi and Rosie driving the beat-up getaway car. The brazen daylight raids net enough cash for the lovers to move in together, taking their fiery romance to the next level. They also draw the attention of the FBI and veteran mob reporter CARDOZO (Romano), who splashes their unlikely story across the front page of the paper. But while the attacks enrage the mob, Bonanno crime family head BIG AL (Garcia) orders his men only to scare the couple. After all, he says, eagles don’t kill flies.

It’s a decision Big Al will come to regret. During one of their heists, Tommy and Rosie stumble upon a Mafia secret so closely guarded that rank-and-file mobsters don’t even know it exists. To the Feds, it’s the smoking gun they’ve been looking for—a key to finally dismantling New York’s already-faltering crime syndicate. To Big Al, it’s the high cost of his earlier leniency—a mistake he quickly moves to correct. For Tommy and Rosie, caught between the law and a mob contract, the future all depends on who gets to them first.

“Rob the Mob” opens March, 2014
