Das Gesetz der Ehre: Directed by Gavin O’Connor. With Colin Farrell, Edward Norton, Jon Voight, Noah Emmerich. A family’s moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law. For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora’s Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.

“I saw a screening of u0026quot;Pride and Gloryu0026quot; last night. Itu0026#39;s the kind of American movie you donu0026#39;t see anymore, a throwback to the big themes and dramatic tone of the 1950s, when Elia Kazan was making movies like u0026quot;East of Edenu0026quot; and u0026quot;On the Waterfront,u0026quot; and Arthur Miller was writing plays like u0026quot;Death of a Salesmanu0026quot; and u0026quot;All My Sons.u0026quot; Family, honor, corruption, right and wrong, fathers and sons–these are the kinds of issues that director/co-writer Gavin Ou0026#39;Connor is taking on in u0026quot;Pride and Glory,u0026quot; and in doing so heu0026#39;s made a timeless film. Sincere without being sentimental (much like u0026quot;Miracle,u0026quot; Ou0026#39;Connoru0026#39;s last effort), u0026quot;Pride and Gloryu0026quot; gets elbow deep in a corruption scandal that threatens to crack the blue wall of the NYPD and destroy the Tierney family legacy (patriarch Jon Voight, sons Ed Norton and Noah Emmerich, and outlaw brother-in-law Colin Farrell, who has never been better). A muscular, old-school American film, with big themes splashed on a big canvas, u0026quot;Pride and Gloryu0026quot; is familiar and original at the same time. In the Age of Irony, these are the kinds of movies you rarely see anymore. An honest, gripping drama.”
