Here is a short review of "The Irishman" movie plot summary.
In a nursing home, elderly Irish-American World War II veteran Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) recounts his time as a hitman for the Mafia. In 1950s Philadelphia, Sheeran works as a union delivery truck driver and starts to sell some of the contents of his shipments to local gangster Skinny Razor (Bobby Cannavale), a member of the Philadelphia crime family headed by Angelo Bruno (Harvey Keitel). After the company Sheeran works for accuses him of theft, union lawyer Bill Bufalino (Ray Romano) gets the case thrown out after Sheeran refuses to name his customers to the judge. Bill introduces Sheeran to his cousin Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci), head of the Northeastern Pennsylvania crime family. Sheeran begins to carry out jobs for Russell, as well as members of the South Philadelphia underworld, including "painting houses," a euphemism for contract killing. Soon, Russell introduces Sheeran to Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino), head of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who has financial ties with the Northeastern Pennsylvania crime family and is struggling to deal with fellow rising Teamster (John Bernard Martin) Anthony "Tony Pro" Provenzano, as well as mounting pressure from the federal government. Hoffa becomes close with Sheeran and his family, especially his daughter Peggy, and Sheeran becomes Hoffa's chief bodyguard.
After the 1960 election of John F. Kennedy, Russell is thrilled while Hoffa is furious. Kennedy's brother, Robert Kennedy (Jack Huston), who he appointed Attorney General, forms a "Get Hoffa" squad to bring down Hoffa, who is eventually arrested and convicted in 1964 for jury tampering. While Hoffa is in prison, his replacement as Teamsters president, Frank "Fitz" Fitzsimmons, misuses the union's pension fund and gives interest-free loans to the Mafia. Hoffa's relationship with Tony Pro, himself arrested for extortion, also deteriorates beyond repair when Hoffa refuses to do a favor for him. Hoffa has his sentence commuted by President Richard Nixon (Jeff DeHart) in 1971, although he is forbidden from partaking in any Teamsters activities until 1980.
