American epic movie of 2019 “The Irishman” (I Heard You Paint Houses) is finally releasing on streaming channel Netflix. Based on Charles Bandit, 2004 novel “I Heard You Paint Houses”, this all-new crime drama star Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, and others.

Created by Martin Scorsese (Silence and The Wolf of Wall Street), this three and a half hour movie is an emotional, violent and dryly funny biography of Frank Sheeran, a World War II combat veteran who later on become a Mafia gang hitman and a union leader. The movie starts with a man (Frank Sheeran) sitting in a nursing home wheelchair and thinking about his past days. The flashbacks show Sheeran, a meatpacking delivery truck driver, who starts selling some of the content of his shipment to a local gangster.

When his company man found him stealing, he hands over him to police and Sheeran does not utter a single gangster name in front of the judge. After release from prison, Sheeran joins hands with the king of crime Russell Bufalino and his criminal family. All these things bring a big change in the life of Sheeran and the criminal world that we see in this movie.

The Irishman is an intersection of crime and politics. It is about mafia history and Washington history, touching Castro’s rise in Cuba, the CIA’s attempts, John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the mob wars of the 1960s and 1970s. The movie set in 1950 Pennsylvania.

When the movie will be released on the digital platform?

The world premiere of crime drama takes place at the 57th New York Film Festival on September 27, 2019, and it will premiere on digital streaming Netflix on November 27, 2019.
