Gangs of New York

R2 Portugal







The seeds for revenge take place in 1846, when a battle is fought against the Irish and the "native" Americans over the five points area of New York City. It is here where "Bill the Butcher" (Day-Lewis) slays Priest Vallon, whose son, Amsterdam Vallon (Dicaprio) is then taken to an orphanage. The plot unfolds when in 1863, Amsterdam returns to the five points to seek revenge against his fathers killer.
