Academy Award winner, Adrien Brody (from The Pianist, The Thin Red Line) is electrifying as Jack, a dark hearted, smooth operating con-man with a poet's soul. By night, Jack and his partner Charlie (Jon Seda from Undisputed, Gladiator) impersonate vice cops to carry out risky scams on Manhattan tourists, while by day, Jack secretly works on a novel culled from the experiences and emotions that define his shady life.
Claire (Charlotte Ayanna from Training Day), a goal-oriented University student, meets Jack and is at once intrigued by his bad-boy persona. Eventually she agrees to meet him and her attraction quickly turns into infatuation and love.
A hard hitting but exquisitely tender story, LOVE THE HARD WAY offers a unique glimpse into the rhythms and temptations of underworld Mahattan. Brody's infectious characterisation of Jack transforms LOVE THE HARD WAY into an unforgettable urban tale of a life too wild and a love too deep.
