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.
According to Pattinson: "He (Connie) believes what he's doing is the right thing, even though he's caused a lot of his brother's problems. And he doesn't even really know his brother. It's about faith, in a way. You see it with people who start cults, where they believe nothing that they do is wrong. So much of the movie is basically just Connie's imprisonment. He has basically lost his mind. He is kind of crazy to begin with, and he's having visions. That's why, when the bank robbery is happening, no one is particularly scared or anything. It's ordained. Everything for Connie is ordained. Me and Josh (Safdie) would joke in the beginning that Connie is sort of a superhero. But his superpower is that he can see about 40 seconds into the future, and that's it. [Laughs] So you are constantly being able to predict things that only are a millisecond in advance."
No one's better than any next man!
When Connie goes to the hospital to see his brother and is walking down the hall on the 6th floor, individuals are seen in the reflection of the glass.
The film's editors receive an unusually prominent credit position: between producers and writers.
