Martin Scorsese took the Oscar for Best Director in this 2007 Boston winner.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Whalberg, and Martin Sheen.

Watch as this incredible cast takes on South Boston as the state police force wages war on Irish American organized crime. Both organizations have moles deeply embedded in their enemy's camp. But when it becomes clear to both the mob and the police that they have a mole in their midst, their agents are suddenly in danger of being caught and exposed. To save themselves, they race to uncover the identity of the other man. But is either willing to turn on their friends and comrades they've made during their long stints undercover?

Mr Watts (Hugh Laurie) is the only white man left on the island of Papua New Guinea after the blockade. He opens the school and introduces the children the 'Great Expectations.'  Matilda, the teenage narrator finds comfort in the story of a Victorian orphan when her own world is falling apart. The Redskins, an army sent to destroy the local rebels are getting closer. Matilda writes 'Pip' in the sand. This simple act leads to terrible consequences when the Redskins suspect Pip to be a rebel leader and demand he be brought before them. Written by Jan Killengray on IMDB.com.

The Readers' Group Book Club discussed this book at their last meeting and requested the movie as well. But isn't the book always better? Come and decide for yourself. Everyone is welcome!
