“Of course, Scorsese delivers a stunning gangster flick, but ‘The Irishman’ is so much more, a melancholy eulogy for growing old and losing your humanity. Savour every one of its 209 minutes — you won’t regret it.” – Ian Freer, Empire. Read Full Review Here.
In the 1950s, truck driver Frank Sheeran (Acedemy Award Winner Robert DeNiro) gets involved with Russell Bufalino (Academy Award Winner Joe Pesci) and his Pennsylvania crime family. As Sheeran climbs the ranks to become a top hit man, he also goes to work for Jimmy Hoffa (Academy Award Winner Al Pacino) — a powerful Teamster tied to organized crime. Directed by Academy Award Winner Martin Scorsese and written by Academy Award Winner Steve Zaillian, this epic film co-stars Harvey Keitel, Anna Paquin, Ray Romano, Jack Huston and Jesse Plemons.
