“We are also excited to be presenting Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino with our inaugural Icon Award – they are the true definition of cinematic icons, each with their own exceptional body of work, and all in top form in The Irishman.”

Based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, the movie has seen three of Hollywood’s biggest icons Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci take to the screen once more for the three-and-a -half-hour mob warfare spectacle.


The movie chronicles the infamous disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa – exploring the tangled world of organized crime.

The movie has generated near-unanimous praise from fans, with many branding it a “masterpiece.”

The Irishman is available to stream on Netflix now.
