"Cleverly Plotted Gangster Movie"

Watch:

What You Need To Know:

THE OUTFIT is an entertaining crime thriller. Leonard is the meticulous English owner of a small tailor shop in Chicago in 1956. Regrettably, the local gangsters in his neighborhood are using his shop as a drop box to contact the Outfit, the organization that runs all the major gangs in the country. The local gangsters discover they have a mole in their gang who’s working with the FBI. One night, the head gangster’s right-hand man, Francis, and his wounded son, Richie, show up at the tailor shop with the latest tape. The situation gets complicated, and Leonard has to think fast before Francis puts a bullet in him.

THE OUTFIT has many surprising, terrific, clever plot twists. Mark Rylance holds the movie together as the mysterious, meticulous owner of the tailor shop. Also, the tailor shop owner turns the tables on the mobsters, some of whom end up dead, even killing one another. However, THE OUTFIT contains lots of strong foul language and some bloody violence. Also, there’s some morally questionable business involving a gang payoff. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution.

Leonard is the English owner of a small tailor shop in Chicago in 1856. He has a mysterious past but is a meticulous cutter and stitcher of the 38 pieces of fabric that go into making a superior suit. Regrettably, the local gangsters in his neighborhood are using his shop as a drop box to contact the Outfit, the organization that runs all the major gangs in the country.

The local gangsters discover they have a mole in their gang who’s working with the FBI to bug them. However, the head gangster’s son, Richie, and his right hand man, Francis, get hold of one of the tapes, but Richie was shot in the stomach by a rival gang. They decide to meet Richie’s father at the tailor shop, where Francis forces Leonard to sew up Richie’s wound. The situation gets complicated, however, and Leonard has to think fast before Francis turns around and decides to put a bullet in him.
