Title City Hall
Year 1996
Director Harold Becker
Genre Drama, Thriller
Plot – A black child accidentally dies during a shootout in New York between a cop, Eddie Santos, and a drug dealer on probation, Tino, grandson of mob boss Paul Zapatti. It is an ugly story that can damage the political scaffolding painstakingly built by Mayor John Pappas of the Democratic Party. For this reason his deputy, the young Kevin Calhoun, is struggling on one side with lawyer Marybeth Cogan, who is defending Santos' widow's rights, and on the other with Frank Anselmo, a Democratic leader. Anselmo is interested in the extension of a subway line connected to a huge commercial project that is wanted by businessmen in cahoots with Zapatti, whose involvement dates back to Tino's unusual release on probation, and Anselmo is a friend of Zapatti. Following a lead, Calhoun meets Larry Schwartz, who works in court: he reveals that he only endorsed the document, which was actually issued by Judge Walter Stern, a man above suspicion. Schwartz, who asked Anselmo in vain for protection, is killed while calling Calhoun.
