German Age Rating

Watch Teaser

Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo rejoin forces to create a 'mesmerizing' (L.A. Weekly) homage to 1930s gangster films and musicals. 1928 New York. Spirits are high and sultry jazz lively dancing and ruthless gangsters rule supreme. In the center of it all is Harlem's Cotton Club... As tensions rise so do tempers and the legendary nightclub becomes a pressure cooker of jilted loves and mob jobs that blows the lid off one of the most shocking showdowns ever staged. MGM

Nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Art Direction and Best Film Editing).
