“We Own the Night” – Oct 14th

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 14th at 5:05 pm for We Own the Night at the Phoenix Theatres Union Station . Look for Brian wearing an orange “Life is Good” hat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

In 1988, New York’s police wage an all-out war on drugs, and guilty and innocent alike become casualties. Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix), manager of a nightclub that is often frequented by gangsters, tries to remain neutral but hides a potentially fatal secret: His brother (Mark Wahlberg) and father (Robert Duvall) are both cops. Caught in the middle, Bobby and his girlfriend, Amanda (Eva Mendes), are forced to choose sides – between the familial ties he has rejected and a future he cannot avoid.
