In the recent years of film, we've witnessed the actions of criminal fraternities in and around Naples, Sicily and southern Italy. Now it's the turn of the country's capital.

Suburra was a suburb of ancient Rome, and in Stefano Sollima's tightly controlled thriller it is the backdrop to the attempts by one gangster to turn a waterfront into Rome's equivalent of Las Vegas. Things initially go to plan, but greed and bitter rivalries soon surface.
