Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Nov 4th at 5:15 for American Gangster at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Schmitty 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.
Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) earns his living as a chauffeur to one of Harlem’s leading mobsters. After his boss dies, Frank uses his own ingenuity and strict business code to rise up as one of the inner city’s most powerful crime bosses. Meanwhile, veteran cop Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe) senses a change in organized crime’s power structure, and looks for ways to bring his opponent to justice.
