An undercover cop and a mole in the police attempt to identify each other while infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston.
Vera Farmiga was one of the only actresses who didn't watch Infernal Affairs (2002), the movie on which this is based. Madolyn is inspired by multiple characters, so Farmiga thought it would be confusing for her.
Normally, he's a very, uh, nice guy.
Ellerby: Don't judge him from this meeting alone.
(at around 1h 10 mins) Madolyn's UMass diploma (visible briefly in a box of her stuff when she's moving into Sullivan's apartment) appears to be a black-and-white photocopy. Real UMass diplomas have an embossed Seal of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in red, blue, and gold ink raised up from the paper, while Madolyn's is entirely black and looks to just be printed on the surface.
The title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 20 minutes into the movie.
