The Drop is really good
5 second plot: Bob is a bartender in his uncle's bar. The bar is actually owned by local gangsters. It serves as a drop point for money that can't be taken to the bank. One day Bob finds a puppy in a dumpster. This sets off a chain of events that he doesn't immediately understand but spirals totally out of control.
5 second review: This is one of those crime movies that we don't get to see very often. It's small scaled but big hearted. We only get to see a tiny piece of the puzzle these people are living in. That's all we need to know. That makes it possible to focus on the characters and on things that matter for the story. All of the performances are really good, but Tom Hardy is just perfect.
