Unformatted text preview: heart attack. My second movie is Goodfellas. Although this movie has a small amount of humor to it, unlike the Godfather, it also gives a sense of how families in the mafia lived in the predominately Italian neighborhoods in the 50’s and 60’s and even into the 70’s and 80’s. The actors in this movie brought to life the story of the Lucchese family, like you ere right there with them. It seems that these actors are the real people that the story is about and not just some actors playing the parts. Even as Henry Hill went through the scenes of selling and being on drugs, he was so looking like he was on drugs. In either of these films, the actors did their jobs perfectly. The characters and their own personalities were brought to life in these movies. The casting was perfectly done is both of these films, in my opinion. Kimberly Morano Boggs, J.M. & Petrie, D.W.
