U.S., 1990, 146 min, 35mm, Dir. Martin Scorsese, Rated R for strong language and bloody violence, drug use and some sexuality
"Spanning thirty years and running two and a half hours, the film bristles with the violent passion, howitzer wit and virtuoso style that made Scorsese's reputation.” - Rolling Stone
The Gables Cinema and the Secret Celluloid Society present the high point of Martin Scorsese's career, Goodfellas, on spectacular 35mm as part of our late-night After Hours series! Scorsese’s brilliant mafia classic is narrated by Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he tells the tale of his beginnings selling stolen cigarettes, rising through the mafia ranks by unimaginable means, prison, and ultimate betrayal. With his partners Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro) and Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci), the three blend blue-collar smarts, ambition, and raging ruthless violence into one successful mafia cocktail. Henry’s wife, Karen Hill (Lorraine Bracco), narrates her own story of acceptance. Goodfellas was adapted from Nicholas Pileggi’s best-selling novel Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family, based on four years of conversations with a former Mafioso living in the Federal Witness Protection Program. Joe Pesci took home the 1991 Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his groundbreaking performance as the psychopathic Tommy DeVito.
