The Irishman + LFF Closing Gala broadcast

Martin Scorsese, the undoubted king of the gangster genre returns to home territory with this sprawling story of Frank Sheeran, a key figure in the American mafia.

Robert De Niro plays Sheeran in his dotage, recalling the key moments in his career, especially the events leading up to the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino).

Using digital de-ageing, the trifecta of Pacino, De Niro and Joe Pesci play these complex men at all ages of their lives, from recruitment into the mob to last days. See this brilliant, long-awaited passion project from one of the saints of cinema on the big screen.
