Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran is a man with a lot on his mind. The former labor union high official and hitman, learned to kill serving in Italy during the Second World War. He now looks back on his life and the hits that defined his mob career, maintaining connections with the Bufalino crime family. In particular, 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.Written by

When Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci) watches the news report on the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion, he supports his head with his left hand and the elbow resting on the counter of the bar, when the camera is in front of him. When the camera angle changes so that the audience sees his back, his arm is resting on the counter, but his head is held up without resting on his hand. See more »
When I was young, I thought house painters painted houses. What did I know? I was a working guy. A business agent for Teamster Local 107 out of South Philly.
One of a thousand working stiffs... until I wasn't no more. And then I started painting houses... myself.

Amazing acting, great story lines and some twists. Loved how the story was told through the eyes of De Niro's character as he was at the end of his life.
For anyone that likes gangster movies, it is worth a watch - high quality actors from across the great gangster films. The only negative is that it lasts 3.5 hours. This would put me off watching it again soon, but definitely worth seeing for the first time.
Kept me glued throughout - defo give it a watch. You won't be disappointed.
