The Untouchables

With Sharon out to dinner with Holly and feeling under the weather, I watched The Untouchables. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards. Sean Connery won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

The Untouchables is a 1987 crime film directed by Brian De Palma and written by David Mamet. It is based on the 1957 book of the same name.

The film stars Kevin Costner [Dances with Wolves, Yellowstone], Charles Martin Smith, Andy GarcĂ­a, Robert De Niro, and Sean Connery. It follows Eliot Ness (Costner) as he forms the Untouchables team to bring Al Capone (De Niro) to justice during Prohibition.

I recommend the movie. I have always enjoyed Sean Connery and watched the movie primarily because he won an Oscar for his role in the film. I was surprised to see a young Kevin Costner in the lead role.
