The Godfather

Without undue emphasis, it shows the closeness, the warmth of family ties... Quite simply, one of the best films. ” Hollywood Reporter

The Godfather comes to TPH as part of the 50th birthday of this American masterpiece. It follows the highs and lows of the Corleone family and their involvement with the mafia.

Regularly sighted as one of the greatest American films ever made, The Godfather epitomises the American obsession with gangster and crime films, and provides a metaphorical critique of that other great U.S. passion: capitalism. The Godfather is rare in that it was both a critical and commercial smash hit, nominated for ten Academy Awards (of which it won three, including Best Picture).
