The Godfather

Does your family have some serious drama? Odds are, not nearly as much drama as the Corleones. This iconic tale centers on the Sicilian-American Corleone family, a tight-knit clan knuckles-deep in New York City organized crime. The patriarch of the family is Don Corleone, reverentially referred to as The Don.

Determined to achieve the American Dream on his own terms, Don Corleone creates an underworld society of which he is the chief orchestrator. In addition to maintaining their position of power, the Corleone family also strives to uphold the highest values of loyalty, family honor, and omertà. The story that became synonymous with the Italian Mafia, this portrait of the ultimate crime family is filled with action, romance, and intrigue.
