Martin Scorsese’s epic Netflix film, The Irishman, follows the life of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran. A World War II veteran and a hitman for the Bufalino crime family, in this based-on-true-events crime drama. Sheeran, played by Robert De Niro, reminisces about his past and the secrets he kept as he worked with mobster Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci) and Teamster Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino). The film suggests that Sheeran was involved in Hoffa’s murder. Although the mystery of Hoffa’s disappearance on July 30, 1975, remains unsolved. The Irishman has a runtime of three and a half hours.
Loosely based on actual events, I, Tonya traces the rise of figure skater Tonya Harding. And her connection to the 1994 attack on her skating rival Nancy Kerrigan. Margot Robbie stars as Tonya, while the film examines the sabotage of Nancy Kerrigan. And Tonya’s ascent in the figure skating world. The attack on Kerrigan had orchestrated by Shawn Eckardt (Paul Walter Hauser), a friend of Tonya’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan), and the movie explores whether Tonya was aware of the plan. It is one of the true tales of crime.
