Not content to stay in the shadow of mafia boss Johnny Torrio (Greg Antonacci), Al craves the spotlight.
Al doesn’t mind being identified as a mobster in the local newspaper, but he becomes furious when his name is misspelled. He confronts a frightened young journalist and brutishly corrects the error.
“Now you know,” Al says, slapping the reporter’s head.
Finally, disfigured Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) is weary of killing, both from his days as an Army sharpshooter and later as a mob assassin. Searching for a fresh start, he returns to his family farm in Wisconsin.
Richard hides his pistol in a woodpile and looks longingly at a warm stove inside the dilapidated farmhouse.
“Emma, I’ve come home,” he calls out to his twin sister.
However, instead of welcoming her long-gone brother with an embrace, Emma holds him at bay with a rifle.
Not exactly the reunion Richard expected.
