Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, The Untouchables
The Untouchables is set in Chicago during the era of prohibition and mob wars. Kevin Costner stars as Federal Agent Eliot Ness, who sets out to stop Al Capone (Robert De Niro) and all of the corruption going on in the city. He recruits some men and they ban together to take down Al Capone and dry up the entire city by confiscating all of the incoming liquor. When Capone realizes that these "untouchables" aren't going anywhere and that his bribes aren't working as well that's when the fighting really begins. 

Sean Connery stars as Eliot's side kick, Jim Malone and together they use each other's expertise to fight Capone's boys. Along the way they have to do things they swore they would never do. They also have to cross the legal line which is something Eliot hadn't bargained for. Will the untouchables all make it out of the mob war with their lives? Watch this classic movie and see. 

I had actually never seen this movie until this past week. I don't know why I waited so long to watch it because it's really good. Kevin Coster, Sean Connery and Andy Garcia do an amazing job in this movie.

I love Andy Garcia, yet another of your theatre Thursdays that I haven't seen! Eeep! If we ever meet in real life can we have a full on movie marathon (with popcorn and ice cream sundaes)?
