SYNOPSIS




Los
Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean
Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the
drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet
placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not
only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians he has
under his thumb. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest,
street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of
LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Sgt. Jerry
Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world
apart.
