THE KITCHEN - Final Trailer.
In crime-ridden Hell's Kitchen in 1978, three women are married to members of the Irish mob. Kathy (Melissa McCarthy) is married to the reluctant but kind Jimmy; Ruby is married to Kevin, the son of Helen and heir to the mob empire; Claire (Elisabeth Moss) is married to Rob, who frequently abuses her. Helen constantly berates Ruby, resentful that her son has married a black woman. Ruby, who is the product of a brutal and dehumanizing mother, bitterly swallows her resentment since Kevin never backs her up. Only Kathy has a happy home life, including two children and loving parents, who wish their daughter was not married to a mobster.
One night, the men are busted in the middle of a robbery by FBI agents and sentenced to three years in prison. Kevin's confederate, Little Jackie, becomes head of the mob and tells the wives they'll be taken care of, but the money isn't enough for them to survive. Claire is attacked and sent to the hospital by a mugger and vows that she will never let a man hit her again. When the women discover that the local businesses paying protection fees are not happy under Little Jackie, they begin collecting protection fees and helping out the neighborhood, making a profit and becoming respected in the community.
When Jackie finds out, he threatens to kill all three women, but catches Claire in an alley and tries to rape her. He is killed in the act by Gabriel O'Malley (Domhnall Gleeson), a former Irish mob enforcer called in by Ruby. While Kathy and Ruby are nauseated, Claire watches dispassionately as Gabriel, a dead-eyed Vietnam vet, dismembers Jackie's body in a bathtub. With Jackie out of the way and Gabriel as their enforcer, the women begin running the neighborhood, while Gabriel trains Claire to be a killer. It's the first tender relationship Claire has ever had and she becomes Gabriel's enthusiastic partner and lover.
