Black Mass

by Scott Cooper Gala Premieres

"If nobody sees it, it didn’t happen." Boston in the 1970s: gangster James “Whitey” Bulger has many a skeleton hiding in his closet. When he receives an audacious proposition from an old friend turned FBI agent, immunity from criminal prosecution in return for information, Whitey jumps at the chance. He uses the deal to get rid of his rivals and thus carry out his own business unhindered. It’s not long before the unscrupulous mobster is in sole control of Boston’s underworld. When the FBI discovers that the pact has spiraled out of control, measures are taken to remedy the situation. Scott Cooper’s uncompromising Mafia film is based on true events. Only in 2013 was America’s most wanted criminal finally sentenced to life behind bars.
