Movie Night: The Departed

With the recent release of Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie, we wanted to revisit Scorcese’s back catalog and the first film that came to mind was The Departed. Whether you have or haven’t seen “Wolf”, there is only one thing you need to know about Scorcese – he does not shy away from the gritty parts of our everyday world. He loves to wade into the grime and take us along for a journey. The all star cast also helps with the likes of Jack Nicholson, Martin Sheen, Leo DiCaprio and Matt Damon. The film just grabs you from the start and keeps you guessing right through to the end.
