"...This is Beautiful Filmmaking..."
-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

From acclaimed director Martin Scorcese (Casino, Taxi Driver) comes one of his most compelling and unforgettable movies. Nicolas Cage stars as Frank Pierce, a paramedic on the brink of madness from too many years of saving and losing lives. One fateful night, Frank meets Mary Burke (Patricia Arquette), the daughter of a man Frank tried to save. Together, Frank and Mary confront ghosts of the past, and discover that redemption can be found among the living. Co-starring John Goodman, Ving Rhames and Tom Sizemore.

"A Great Film Filled with Fire and Passion"
-Roger Ebert & The Movies
