In the action-thriller Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard in the story of legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger (Depp)—the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover’s fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public.
New York, 1974.
Chris Pierzynski has just been released after years in prison for his part in a gangland murder. Waiting reluctantly outside the prison gates is his younger brother, Frank, a cop with a bright future. Chris and Frank have always been different, and their father, who raised them alone, has always favored Chris – despite all his troubles. Frank has known this since they were kids, and it eats at him like nothing else.
But blood is the tie that binds. Frank gives his brother a chance: he shares his home, finds Chris a job, helps him reconnect with his kids and ex-wife. When Chris meets Natalie, the promise of a new life beckons, but his past quickly catches up with him, and his return to a life of crime is inevitable. For Frank, his brother’s descent is the final betrayal, and he banishes Chris from his life. Leaving the police department, Frank moves in with Vanessa, the former girlfriend of a dangerous Mob hit man.
Chris has killed before, and he will kill again. Frank is powerless to stop him. But despite all the rivalries, the violent conflicts, the painful betrayals, Chris will stop at nothing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
