The Godfather Part II
Thursday Night Movies
“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!”
The compelling sequel to The Godfather, contrasting the life of Corleone father and son. Traces the problems of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) in 1958 and that of a young immigrant Vito Corleone (Robert De Niro) in 1917’s Hell’s Kitchen. Michael survives many misfortunes and Vito is introduced to a life of crime. Features mob shenanigans in Florida and Cuba, Michael’s descent into anguished loneliness, and where the young don really comes down on what the word “family” truly means. A classic that many critics feel is the rare sequel that may be superior to the original.
1974, Rated R
