Bobby Green (Joaquin Phoenix) was born into a family of policemen.  His father,

Burt Grusinsky (Robert Duvall) is an NYPD deputy chief, while his brother Joe (Mark Wahlberg) serves as a captain.  Bobby was uninterested in police work though, and instead opted for a more self-indulgent life as a club owner.

He often came into contact with seedy characters who might not appreciate his police connections, and so Bobby changed his last name.  But when a Russian mobster who frequents Green's club hospitalizes his father for months, Bobby goes undercover to seek revenge.

We Own the Night was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.  The picture earned $54 million internationally, more than double its $21 million budget.
