#FLAWLESS Starring ROBERT DE NIRO On Blu-ray For The First Time May 19th

The unlikely arrangement soon mellows into a grudging friendship in writer/director Joel Schumacher ’s Flawless.

Starring: ROBERT DE NIRO (1900, Casino, Goodfellas, The Godfather Part 2) PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN (Capote, Mission Impossible 3) WILSON JERMAINE HEREDIA (Rent, Nailed) Directed by: JOEL
