Black Mass starring Johnny Depp is the story of the famous Irish-American criminal, Whitey Bulger (played by Depp). The film takes place in South Boston, in the late 1970s to the early 1980s. Whitey spent 30 years as an FBI informant… so that he could take down a mafia family taking over his neighbourhood. It follows his crimes and violent acts as he becomes the leader of the Irish-American Winter Hill Gang. The most exciting part of period pieces are the set design, the costumes, and of course, the cars.
