You want a piece of Leo? Or Damon? Or Marky Mark? Or even Jack???
The Departed comes out on DVD on February 13th, less than 2 weeks before Oscar. As you know, it is in the running for Best Picture, so I’m giving you a chance to own it before the big night. A synopsis, just in case:
"The Departed" is set in South Boston, where the state police force is waging war on organized crime. Young undercover cop Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) is assigned to infiltrate the mob syndicate run by gangland chief Costello (Jack Nicholson). While Billy is quickly gaining Costello"s confidence, Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon), a hardened young criminal who has infiltrated the police department as an informer for the syndicate, is rising to a position of power in the Special Investigation Unit. Each man becomes deeply consumed by his double life, gathering information about the plans and counter-plans of the operations he has penetrated. But when it becomes clear to both the gangsters and the police that there"s a mole in their midst, Billy and Colin are suddenly in danger of being caught and exposed to the enemy -- and each must race to uncover the identity of the other man in time to save himself.
And another reminder: in addition to Best Picture, The Departed has been nominated for Best Director and Best Supporting Actor, Achievement in Film Editing, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
