The Godfather is now a movie.

Director Francis Ford Coppola brings Mario Puzo's epic saga of the Corleone crime family to the screen in stunning fashion. Oscars include Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Actor for Marlon Brando's riveting performance as the Don. But the whole cast is excellent, including Al Pacino as Michael and James Caan as the ill-fated Sonny Corleone. Truly an offer you can't refuse!

This is a true movie great. Its a drama so dont expect special effects and the like, but the acting is some of the best ever. Brando is particulary good in this one
