Directed by Sidney Lumet, Based on the true story of Jack DiNorscio, In 1987, When police arrest twenty members of the Lucchese crime family, the authorities offer Jackie Dee DiNorscio a bargain: a shortened prison term if he’ll testify against his own. But the wisecracking DiNorscio has other ideas, Refusing to cooperate. After years of federal investigation, 20 members of the Lucchese crime family are brought to court on 76 different charges. The U.S. Government is prepared to take down the mob’s biggest crime families until one defendant decides to do the unthinkable – defend himself.
(The United States v. Anthony Accetturo et al. was the longest criminal case on record in the federal courts of the nation.)
