A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.
A botched card game in London triggers four friends, thugs, weed-growers, hard gangsters, loan sharks and debt collectors to collide with each other in a series of unexpected events, all for the sake of weed, cash and two antique shotguns.
It's a hard movie to summarize without spoiling it.
Saw it at the Chicago Int'l Film Festival last night, and if this does receive a theatrical release, I'd recommend going. Per the director, there may already be plans to release it on cable and DVD, and theatrical options for New York/Los Angeles/Chicago are being explored. Keep your fingers crossed.
I'm sure other people will add more useful comments, but someone had to get this started.
