'The gangster he is playing is called Frank Sheeran.

The big thing on the hitman's conscience is his troubled relationship with one of his daughters.

The Thinking Out Loud singer has been linked to cartel worker Frank Sheeran - whose life was depicted in new Martin Scorsese film, The Irishman. In short, it's a true-crime saga, and we are excited to sink into the three-and-a-half-hour film.

That is peak Scorsese - all method of terrible issues made fantastic to have a look at. The new film is based on Charles Brandt's true-crime book I Heard You Paint Houses, which digs deep into the story of Jimmy Hoffa's murder. Sheeran's prison declare to fame is his involvement within the disappearance and loss of life of union chief Jimmy Hoffa.

And Robert De Niro plays the part of Ed's uncle, which isn't too shabby. He drives in the company of his friend and mentor, crime family kingpin Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci), and their wives.

As Bufalino, Pesci performs the sensible, quiet, ethical centre of the mob universe, a contradiction in phrases that form of sums up the entire image. Other stories come out of that tale. The underworld and the rest of the world are not separate from one another; here is the mob's offhand involvement in the Bay of Pigs incident, for example, or in John Kennedy's election and in his death.

As at all times, Scorsese pulls a viewer utterly into the world he has created. The cast includes Anna Paquin, Bobby Cannavale, Harvey Keitel, Jack Huston, Ray Romano, Jesse Plemons and Kathrine Narducci, not to mention the usual arresting collection of unique secondary players and faces that the filmmaker never fails to produce.

The Irishman opens on the TIFF Bell Lightbox this Friday. While it's currently in theaters, it's set to hit Netflix on November 27, so set your reminders now, people.
