Overview

In this drama, a young man joins the family business without knowing that he's entering a world of danger and deceit. Hot-headed Leo Handler Mark Wahlberg has had some scrapes with the law and served time for a crime he didn't commit. Hoping to get his life back on track, he takes a job in the New York subway yards, secured by his Uncle Frank James Caan, who has a high-ranking position in the New York Transit Authority. The longer Leo works in the yards, the more he realizes that his uncle controls a corrupt underworld where graft, violent reprisals, and even death are just part of the job. Will Leo turn against his family in the name of justice, or will he keep quiet and ignore the danger and lawlessness that surround him? The Yards also features Charlize Theron, Joaquin Phoenix, Ellen Burstyn, and Faye Dunaway. It was director James Gray's first film after his acclaimed debut with Little Odessa.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A melancholy, morally ambiguous study in blue-collar venality, The Yards demonstrates the nature of corruption and its cancerous effect on people who imagine themselves decent. Mark Wahlberg is chilling in the pivotal role of Leo Handler, a young, poorly educated ex-con who needs money to support his sickly mother Ellen Burstyn. His uncle Frank James Caan, who runs a business repairing New York City subway trains, wants to help out, and Leo winds up working with his shady best friend, Willie Joaquin Phoenix, a facilitator around the yards. When a yardmaster is murdered, Leo is implicated, and the law's vise begins to tighten. Director and co-writer James Gray Little Odessawhose own father figured in a racketeering scandal, knows intimately the system he's depicting: His characters engage in a conspiracy of silence, tempted to betray each other only by their instinct for self-preservation. They live in a dour, morose world, visualized by Gray in burnished ocher images. Burstyn, Faye Dunaway, and Charlize Theron are exceptional as the women in Leo's life, each resigned to her increasingly desperate position in his shadowy existence. The Yards is neither a vibrant crime film nor a simplistic morality play: It is a stark, realistic, occasionally poignant drama whose characters will etch themselves into your memory.

    One of the best films ever!

    I love this movie, I've seen it about a thousand times. It has a great all star cast includeing Mark Whalburg, Faye Dunaway, Charlize Theronand, JAmes Caan and most of all, Joaquin Phoenix, who is so cute in this movie. The acting is great, the story is great, the special features on the dvd are great, and the movie itself will make you laugh, scream, and cry. This is a really wonderfull movie.
