"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 spiraled 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 (Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart), the gangster saga also stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Twelve Years a Slave) as Whitey's Senator brother; Kevin Bacon as the FBI Agent in Charge; Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) as Whitey's girlfriend and many more."
