- 3h 30min
- Directed by: Martin Scorsese
- Cast: Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin
- UK release: 8 November 2019
The story of mob enforcer and union official Frank Sheeran (De Niro) and his relationship with Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) and Mafia string-puller Russell Bufalino (Pesci). The de-aging technology is easy to forgive thanks to the masterly filmmaking, and although there’s no room for a complex female character it’s gripping, sombre and builds to a shattering conclusion.
