State of Grace (1990)

Terry Noonan is an undercover cop who used to live in the New York City area known as Hell’s Kitchen. He had been in Boston for a few years but now he’s back, reunited with his old childhood friends, the crazy hothead Jackie Flannery and Stevie McGuire, while secretly trying to take down the Irish mob which Jackie’s older brother Frankie is the leader of. Terry also reunites with his old girlfriend Kathleen, whom is Jackie and Frankie’s younger sister. This intense and gritty but violent film is amazing and terribly underrated. The three leads are all astounding, most especially Oldman who completely steals the show. Starring Sean Penn, Ed Harris, Gary Oldman, Robin Wright, John C. Reilly, John Turturro, Burgess Meredith 9/10
