Ride along with two New York cops as they tail heroin suspects in Nitehawk and Four Horsemen’s special Film Feast presentation of THE FRENCH CONNECTION.
A tale of crime, cops, and New York is best served with a glass of wine and french inspired cuisine. Based on a true story, William Friedkin’s Oscar-winning thriller The French Connection follows two New York City detectives Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider) as they attempt to break a narcotics smuggling ring and ultimately uncover “The French Connection.” But when one of the criminals tried to kill Doyle, he begins a deadly pursuit that takes him far outside the city limits.
As always, our Film Feasts serve each dish at the moment its inspirational scene comes on the screen!
