The Departed

The Departed is set in South Boston, where the police force is waging war on organized crime. Undercover cop Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) is assigned to infiltrate the Irish mob syndicate run by gangland chief Costello (Jack Nicholson). While Billy is quickly gaining Costello's confidence, Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon), a young criminal who has infiltrated the police department, is rising to a position of power. 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 - and each must race to uncover the identity of the other man. The all-star cast also includes Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, and Martin Sheen. Martin (The Aviator) Scorsese directs this remake of the 2002 Hong Kong hit 'Infernal Affairs,' which was adapted by William ('Kingdom of Heaven') Monahan.
