About the film:

As waves of immigrants swell the population of New York, lawlessness and corruption thrive in lower Manhattan’s Five Points section. After years of incarceration, young Irish immigrant Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio) returns seeking revenge against the rival gang leader, Bill the Butcher (Daniel Day-Lewis), who killed his father. Before long, Amsterdam’s personal vendetta becomes part of an erupting wave of full-blown gang warfare, as he and his fellow Irishmen fight to carve a place for themselves in their newly adopted homeland.

“At turns brilliant and ponderous, luminous and drab, this is the type of ethereal feast only America’s greatest living director could attempt.”

—Sarah Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak

The first of the director’s collaborations with Leonardo DiCaprio, Scorsese’s Gangs of New York (2002) received ten Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director for Scorsese and Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis.

About the filmmaker:

Martin Scorsese is an influential and award-winning American film director, producer, screenwriter and actor. He is the recipient of numerous accolades and honors, including the AFI Life Achievement Award in 1997, the Kennedy Center Honor in 2007, and the BAFTA Fellowship in 2012. Five of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant”—Mean Streets (1973), his Palme d’Or winner Taxi Driver (1976), concert documentary The Last Waltz (1978), Raging Bull (1980), and Goodfellas (1990). An advocate for film preservation and restoration, Scorsese founded three nonprofit organizations: the Film Foundation in 1990, the World Cinema Foundation in 2007, and the African Film Heritage Project in 2017.
