Martin Scorsese's The Departed put Beantown back on the cinematic map in 2006. This South Boston-set tale of rats, within both the Irish mob and the state police force, is the perfect place to acquaint yourselves with the darker side of the city you call home.

The Massachusetts State Police want to end the reign of powerful mob boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) from the inside. A young rookie, Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) is assigned to infiltrate Costello's mob. While Billy is working to gain Costello's trust, another young cop, Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) is among a handful of elite officers whose mission is to bring Costello down. But what his superiors don't know is that Colin is working for Costello, keeping the crimeboss one step ahead of the police.
