After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Connie Nikas embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city's underworld in an increasingly desperate-and dangerous-attempt to get his brother Nick out of jail.
Josh Safdie about visiting jail for preparation: "When we were developing the look of Connie, we brought Rob (Pattinson) to an active jail. I had become friends with the warden, this woman Raylene, who is actually in the movie as the voice of the operator at Elmhurst. And I befriended through this interesting character who I knew, the commissioner of jails. So we had this unfettered access and when we brought Rob there, he didn't say a word because his accent wasn't down yet, but he'd be able to walk around and see what a real jail looks and feels like and what it's like to be going through the system. We had like notepads and stuff and everybody kind of thought we were from the city and asked for their lawyers. Rob went in an oversized hoodie, so nobody could recognize him and he looked a bit like a teenager. I think someone actually asked if he was there for Scared Straight." (laughs)
