The Godfather

by Francis Ford Coppola

4.4/5

A modern masterpiece,The Godfather is a searing portrayal of the 1940s criminal underworld. It is also the intimate story of the Corleone family, at once drawn together and ripped apart by its unique position at the core of the American Mafia. Still shocking forty years after it was first published, this compelling tale of blackmail.

“Great men are not born great, they grow great . . .”

Mario Puzo, The Godfather
