State of Grace


State of Grace, the 1990 gangster movie set in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, comes to Blu-Ray™  courtesy of Second Sight on 24th August 2015.  

After ten years away, Terry Noonan, played by Sean Penn (Milk, 21 Grams, Mystic River) finds his place back in his old neighbourhood and is welcomed with open arms.  Things are slightly different this time around from Irish-American Noonan as he returns to New York, because the once tough street thug is now a police officer, one that is now undercover and tasked with getting as close as possible to big time crime boss, Frankie Flannery, played by Ed Harris (The Abyss).  

5287It is no straight forward undercover job though, because Frankie Flannery is not just anyone, he is the father of two people very close, once upon a time, to Noonan, Jackie Flannery, played by Gary Oldman (The Firm, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) who happens to be Terry’s best friend and Kathleen Flannery, played by Robin Wright (House of Cards) is Noonan’s old girlfriend.

5288As he reignites the relationships he once held so dear, Noonan finds himself question everything he has come to believe and things begin to escalate, as does the violence.

5251Stand out performances, ultra-violence and a gritty, raw direction, State of Grace is one of the stand out gangster movies of the 1990s, bring Hell’s Kitchen to your front room!

  • Directing A Bunch of Gangsters: Making of State of Grace – An interview with director Phil Joanou
