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.
I'm gonna go have a smoke right now. You want a smoke? You don't smoke, do ya, right? What are ya, one of those fitness freaks, huh? Go fuck yourself.
(at around 2h 10 mins) The taped recording of Costello and Sullivan that Madolyn listens to is from their conversation in the porn theater. However Costello's lines are different on the tape than they were in the theater. One example: While in the theater he says "It won't be me who suffers for it" (at around 1h 26 mins). Whereas on the tape you hear him say "It won't be me who pays for it".
The title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 20 minutes into the movie.
