Storyline

In the winter of 2005, the final bloody war between the fading Irish and Italian mobs of Boston took place, a mass slaughter that would change America's underworld forever. Showing both sides in an equal light with neither as a clear-cut "hero" or "villain" group, the film is a cold examination of how quickly pride, anger, and desperation can tear a city apart. The Winter Hill Gang has been a mere shadow of its former self since its now-infamous leader Whitey Bulger went on the run from the FBI in 1995. A few years later the Charlestown-based faction struck out on its own, and the two groups fought on and off again for some time until an uneasy ceasefire was called. Times are tough in a city where the working class they prey upon are replaced by increasing numbers of students and yuppies, and so when the latest boss Sean catches wind of an Italian heroin deal, he sees a chance to help bring the organization back to its earlier heights. While some are skeptical or nervous about such ... Written by Stormin

Trivia

Originally the filmmakers were considering making a crime caper movie in the vein of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) or Snatch. (2000) called "Imperfect Crime," many characters from which made it into "Beantown." Ed Zeppelin, Sheep-Shaggin' Sean, Fancy Dan Medici and others were originally from that script, as were several of the gags including that of a character continually fixing himself up with duct tape and other objects as he is more and more injured.
