In a career that includes Oscar-nominated masterpieces such as Serpico, Prince of the City and The Verdict, director Sidney Lumet has cross-examined the fine line between those who enforce the law and those who exploit it, both in the courtroom and on the streets. Adapting a novel by former NYPD officer Robert Daley (Year of the Dragon), Lumet once again exposes the corrupt underbelly of the city that never sleeps in Night Falls on Manhattan. Sean Casey (Andy Garcia) is an assistant district attorney and a rising star in the New York City legal system. He is forced into a tough position when his ambitious boss, seeking re-election, asks Sean to prosecute a drug dealer caught by two NYPD detectives under controversial circumstances - one of whom happens to be Sean's father (Ian Holm). As Sean gets closer to the truth in the case, what he uncovers may break his faith in the legal system, threaten his promising career and tear his family apart. Boasting a powerhouse supporting cast including Lena Olin, Richard Dreyfuss and James Gandolfini, this underrated entry in Lumet's canon of crime classics can be freshly reappraised with a new restoration and illuminating bonus features.

Press Quotes

[Lumet did] a good job of articulating the disillusioning realities of careerism and crime. And he has an ear, as ever, for the disparate voices of the city

     —Janet Maslin, New York Times

Knowledgeable about the city and the people who make accommodations with it... doesn't really have 'villains' in the usual movie sense of the word. It's too smart and grown up for such lazy categories [Night Falls on Manhattan]

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

Not only does it have a good feel for both sides of the police corruption issue, but it's aware of the political rivalries and behind-the-scenes dealmaking that keeps a city running.

     —James Berardinelli, ReelViews

Lumet makes [Night Falls on Manhattan] believable the old-fashioned way: through interaction with a screen full of strongly drawn, fully dimensioned, psychologically valid characters

     —Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times

The film's setup is intense, full of fearsome action, a pulse-pumper

     —Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
