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.
