Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (De Niro) is a man with a lot on his mind. In Scorsese’s latest, Frank looks back on his life and the hits that defined his mob career, maintaining connections with the Bufalino crime family.

In particular, he looks at the part he claims to have played in the disappearance of his life-long friend, Jimmy Hoffa, the former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who mysteriously vanished in late July 1975 at the age of 62.

The Irishman is an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.

Did you know? Martin Scorsese has said that he couldn’t get a Hollywood studio to back his epic mob movie, claiming nobody was interested in making a film with him and Robert De Niro anymore. Fortunately Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos ultimately stepped behind the production with a proposed budget of $160 million and the film was finally greenlighted.

“A new American classic” – Adam Woodward, Little White Lies

“It’s been almost a quarter of a century since Martin Scorsese teamed up with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci for his epic mob drama Casino. Now, thanks in part to the miracle of digital de-ageing technology, the septuagenarian trio have reunited for another sweeping tale of crime and politics, spanning six decades as it blends the episodic, adrenaline rush of GoodFellas with a rather more contemplative melancholia” – Mark Kermode, The Observer
