Description

Seething with incendiary street malice, Martin Scorsese's epic saga of organized crime in postwar America stars Oscar® winners Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci and divulges the controversial confessions of mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (De Niro), his relationship to the infamous Bufalino crime family via Russell Bufalino (Pesci), and his involvement with the still-unsolved disappearance of notorious labor organizer Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino). Penned by Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List, Gangs of New York) and based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, The Irishman is the ninth feature collaboration between De Niro and Scorsese (and their first since 1995's Casino), the fourth film to star both De Niro and Pacino (following The Godfather: Part II, Heat, and Righteous Kill), and—shockingly—the very first collaboration between Pacino and Scorsese. One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, The Irishman features a magnetic ensemble which includes Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Ray Romano, and Harvey Keitel.
