About

Johnny Depp gives a show-stopping, Oscar-worthy performance as notorious Irish-American Whitey Bulger in BLACK MASS. Based on the book by Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill and directed by Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART), the film takes a hard look at the conditions which allowed Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history: an unholy alliance in the 1970s between the FBI and the Irish mob which aimed to eliminate the Italian mafia. Edgerton, Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, and Corey Stoll also star in this understated yet thrilling crime drama.
