One of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history!
Based on the book Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob, this crime drama stars Oscar nominee Johnny Depp as the infamous gangster Whitey Bulger.
In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James "Whitey" Bulger (Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiralled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.
Directed by Scott Cooper, the gangster saga also stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Whitey's Senator brother; Kevin Bacon as the FBI Agent in Charge; Dakota Johnson as Whitey's girlfriend and many more.
