The drama Pride and Glory tells the story of an Irish-American family of New York City police officers looking into their professional and personal lives that center around the job.

The Teirneys are a proud family of three generations of New York City cops who have dedicated themselves to selflessly serving one of the world's greatest cities. But all of that is thrown into chaos when one son is involved in an investigation that may implicate his own brother in a series of brutal crimes.

Pride and Glory features some high intensity star power and top notch acting talent in Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and John Voight. Originally, the long in production film was supposed to star Mark Wahlberg, Hugh Jackman, Ed Harris and Robert Duvall and then Nick Notle but all moved onto other projects or dropped out as production faltered.

Directed by Gavin O'Connor, whose father is a former NYC police detective, O'Connor apparently shot some documentary style footage of real police officers, suspects and criminals. He went so far as to apparently shoot a real New York City police officer's funeral, which may or may not be interwoven into the film along with the rest of the documentary footage. (D.
