Jameson Presents... The Godfather
JAMESON OSCARS SPECIAL
Jameson Irish Whiskey and QFT continue their series of special themed film experience events celebrating cult classics from a range of different genres. To celebrate this year's Academy Awards ceremony, The Godfather was chosen as the most popular Oscar-winning film in our online poll and will be the sixth of our cult film nights hosted by Ralph McLean (BBC Northern Ireland).
Forty years on from its original release and The Godfather has lost none of its power. Based on the 1969 novel by Mario Puzo and popularly viewed as one of the best American films ever made, this multi-generational crime saga is a touchstone of cinema: one of the most widely imitated, quoted, and lampooned movies of all time.
The 45th Academy Award winner for Best Picture, it was the first winner to be even partially set in Los Angeles, the first to depict the film industry, and the first in which an Oscar statuette is visible.
"Francis Ford Coppola has made one of the most brutal and moving chronicles of American life ever designed within the limits of popular entertainment." - NEW YORK TIMES
