Once Upon a Time in America Once Upon a Time in America

Crime, passion and lust for power - Sergio Leone's explosive saga of gangland America.

Though Sergio Leone is primarily known for his westerns, his final film is a sweeping gangster epic with meditations on friendship, loyalty, and the passage of time. Spanning decades, the film follows a group of Jewish gangsters from childhood into their glory years of prohibition, and their eventual reunion in later years.
