Adapted by director Guillame Canet and co-writer James Gray, the film is based on Jacques Maillot's 2008 French film 'Rivals' ('Les liens du sang'). Set in New York, 1974, the story largely follows two brothers: police officer Frank and his ex-con brother Chris who's just been let out of jail and needs to find a job or he'll find himself back behind bars.
