The brilliant companion piece to "The Godfather" continues the saga of two generations of successive power within the Corleone Family from a screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola based on Mario Puzo's novel. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, "The Godfather Part 2" tells two important stories: the roots and rise of a young Don Vito, played with uncanny ability by Robert De Niro, and the ascension of Michael (Al Pacino) as the new Don. Reassembling many of the talents who made "The Godfather", Coppola produced a movie of staggering magnitude and vision, and undeniably the best sequel ever made.
"The Godfather," Francis Ford Coppola's epic masterpiece features Marlon Brando in his Oscar-winning role as the patriarch of the Corleone family. Director Coppola paints a chilling portrait of the Sicilian clan's rise and near fall from power in America, masterfully balancing the story between the Corleone's family life and the ugly crime business in which they are engaged. Based on Mario Puzo's best-selling novel and featuring career-making performances by Al Pacino, James Cann and Robert Duvall, this searing and brilliant film garnered eleven Academy Award nominations, and won three including Best Picture in 1972. It is considered by many to be one of the greatest American films ever made.
