Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Oscar winner Marlon
Brando as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Coppola paints a
chilling portrait of a Sicilian family's rise and near fall from
power in America, and the passage of rites from father to son.
He masterfully balances the story between family life and the ugly
business of crime in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo's
best-selling novel, this graphic and brilliant film garnered ten
Academy Award nominations®.
