“A man who doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man.”
Francis Ford Coppola’s epic features Marlon Brando in his Oscar-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Director Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan’s rise and near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the Corleone’s family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel and featuring career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall, this searing and brilliant film garnered ten Academy Award nominations, and won three including Best Picture of 1972.
“Francis Ford Coppola has made one of the most brutal and moving chronicles of American life ever designed within the limits of popular entertainment.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times
“As filmmaking and storytelling, ‘The Godfather’ remains a bravura piece of work, its set pieces, dialogue and performances entrenched cinematic icons.” – Ben Walters, Time Out
