This Week’s Silver Screen Selection: Gangster Squad

This Week’s Silver Screen Selection: Gangster Squad

THERE’S only a few more days until avid Ryan Gosling fans can have their fix – his latest film Gangster Squad is hitting the big screen this weekend.

The movie has everything that you need in a movie: A great cast – including Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Nick Nolte – action, swoon-worthy vintage fashion and Emma Stone looking smokin’ as she seduces Ryan’s character Jerry Wooters.

Set in 1949, the film shows ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) running the show in Los Angeles.

He is hell bent on reaping the rewards from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and — if he has his way — every wire bet placed west of Chicago.

He does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control.

However, a small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.

Stone plays Grace Faraday, who is romantically involved with Jerry.

Watch the trailer, below.
