Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.
When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless (or so she thinks) flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire's son, the teen's attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her, but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.
The scene when Kevin suffers a severe allergic reaction and Noah retrieves Kevin's Epinephrine injector, shows Noah holding the unit with the safety cap still in position. In addition, the needle extracts while the safety cap is on (which should not be possible) and the needle should not be able to protrude as far out as the scene shows. See more »
