The Irishman is a 2019 American epic crime movie directed and produced by Martin Scorsese and written by Steven Zaillian. It is based on Charles Brandt’s 2004 nonfiction book I Heard You Paint Houses. Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham, and Harvey Keitel play supporting parts alongside Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. The Irishman was revealed as Scorsese’s next picture after Silence in September 2014, after years of development hell (2016). That month, De Niro, who also acted as producer, and Pacino were confirmed, as was Pesci, who emerged from his unofficial retirement to star in response to several demands.
The Irishman had its world premiere at the 57th New York Film Festival, and it was released in restricted theatres on November 1, 2019, followed by digital streaming on Netflix on November 27, 2019. It gained widespread critical acclaim, with praise for Scorsese’s direction as well as De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci’s performances.
The film earned multiple awards, including 10 nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Pacino and Pesci, and Best Adapted Screenplay at the 92nd Academy Awards. It was also nominated for five prizes at the 77th Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture – Drama, and ten nominations at the 73rd British Academy Film Awards, including Best Film.
