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.
