The Traitor (2019)
Master veteran Marco Bellocchio delivers with this riveting courtroom drama that retells the events surrounding the Sicilian Mafia ‘Maxi Trial’ of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Tommaso Buscetta escapes to Brazil as a war rages between Sicilian mafia bosses over the heroin trade. Buscetta watches from afar as his sons and brother are killed in Palermo, knowing he may be next. Arrested and extradited to Italy by the Brazilian police, Buscetta makes a decision that will change everything for the Mafia: He decides to meet with Judge Giovanni Falcone and betray the eternal vow he made to the Cosa Nostra.
