Once Upon a Time in America

Ten years in the planning, Sergio Leone's epic portrays 50 years of riveting underworld history and offers rich roles to a remarkable cast. Robert De Niro and James Woods play lifelong Lower East Side pals whose wary partnership unravels in death and mystery. Strong support comes from Tuesday Weld, Joe Pesci, Jennifer Connelly, Elizabeth McGovern and the young actors playing the central characters as ghetto kids. Leone's final film has a memorable soundtrack from long-time collaborator Ennio Morricone.
