Gangs of New York
Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the orphaned son of the slain Priest Vallon (Liam Neeson) - once chief warrior of the Dead Rabbits gang that rallied the Irish immigrants of the Five Points. Amsterdam has returned to the Five Points to hunt down his father's killer. His target is William Cutting AKA "Bill the Butcher" (Daniel Day-Lewis), who has since become the merciless new leader of the neighbourhood, a Nativist who detests the newly arrived immigrants and is determined to fend off all so-called "foreign invaders". Amsterdam works his way deep into the Butcher's inner circle, a world of alternating honour and cruelty from which he can only hope to escape.
