"When friendship runs deeper than blood"
Add to Watchlist

Set in New York Hell's Kitchen, a group of four fun-loving, childhood friends are sent to a school for boys, a consequence of a prank gone wrong. Unfairly punished by the judicial system, the boys are separated from their families and, unbeknownst to the judicial system or the city, are physically and sexually abused by the school's sadistic staff. With nowhere to turn and in fear of further abuse, the boys keep their painful secret amongst themselves until 15 years later.

Now confident adults, these childhood friends regroup in this powerful tale of revenge in the courtroom. Sleepers, directed and written by Barry Levinson, is a tense story of memory, retribution, evil, lost innocence, and hope. With an all-star cast including Brad Pitt, Robert Di Nero, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Patric, and Kevin Bacon as one of the unforgettably villainous characters of 1990's cinema, Sleepers is a taut drama of procedural and natural justice.
