Storyline

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.

Goofs

In the scene where crazy Joe gets shot in the restaurant, Frank is using 2 revolvers to kill him. The newscaster on the TV report said that Joey was shot 14 times. The 2 snub nose revolvers were more than likely 5 shot which between the 2 revolvers would have been 10 shots, even if they were 6 shot revolvers it would have been a maximum of 12 shots, 14 shots would not have been possible.

Frank Sheeran: [narrating] 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.
Frank Sheeran: One of a thousand working stiffs... until I wasn't no more. And then I started painting houses... myself.
