Rob The Mob

Now Playing Synopsis: The incredible true story of Thomas and Rosemarie Uva serves as the inspiration for this crime drama about a pair of young lovers who make a shocking discovery while robbing the mob to make some quick cash. The year was 1992. Tommy (Michael Pitt) and Rosie (Nina Arianda) are locked in the throes of a heated love affair when they decide to rob a New York City florist. But the Valentine's Day heist doesn't go off as planned, and lands both of them in prison. Upon being released, Rosie decides to turn her back on crime, and finds a job at a debt-collection agency. Although Tommy reluctantly follows suit, his obsession with the trial of John Gotti soon reawakens memories of seeing local Mafioso put a hurting on his hard-working father. Intrigued by the revelation that Sammy "The Bull" Gravano operates a series social clubs where guns are strictly forbidden, Tommy convinces Rosie to join him in a series of brazen armed robberies targeting the most notorious gangsters in the city. In no time the couple have earned a reputation as a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde, and as the FBI and crime reporter Cardozo (Ray Romano) begin keeping tabs on Tommy and Rosie, Bonanno crime family head Big Al (Andy Garcia) attempts to scare the pair into cutting their crime spree short. It's all fun and games until the two young bandits rob a gangster carrying a family tree detailing the connections between New York City's most powerful crime families. That single piece of paper contains all the evidence the FBI would need to dismantle the city's powerful underworld empire, and now as Big Al orders his men to retrieve it at any cost, Tommy and Rosie realize their good luck has finally run out. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Michael Pitt, Nina Arianda, Andy Garcia, Ray Romano, Griffin Dunne, Michael Rispoli, Yul Vázquez, Frank Whaley, Burt Young Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Fishermen should have priority with DNR

I am concerned about the Parnell Administration's refusal to process fishermen's water rights applications, using the excuse that they didn't have enough staff. Under former Commissioner Dan Sullivan, DNR worked hard to help PacRim develop Chuitna for a millionaire from Texas. The state should put the same effort into processing Alaska fishermen's water reservation applications. Coastal communities like Homer depend on these water reservations for the health of our fisheries and local economy.
