Al Capone is one of the most notorious gangsters in the history of American crime. Not only did he rise to prominence during the prohibition era, but at the peak of his power, Capone almost ran the city of Chicago. As many know, the gangster was eventually arrested for tax evasion. Now, ‘Capone‘ tells us about the later stages of his life, after the notoriety was stripped away and banal anonymity remained. It paints a bleak picture of a man who was once larger than life, showing that crime does not pay. Curious to find out where you can stream the movie? We have got you covered and will walk you through the film’s plot.
What is Capone About?
The story picks up after Capone is released from prison. He is let out at 47 when his mind is rotting due to syphilis, and he’s no longer considered a threat. The plot follows his life in the year before his death at the age of 48. We see how he relocates to Palm Island in Florida and is under FBI observation.
While many believed he was faking his mental illness, we see Capone plagued by the horrors and violence of his past. After a physical confrontation with his wife, she orders his bodyguards to keep everyone away from him. Alone with his thoughts, Capone’s mind devolves further until he reverts to a childlike state. He meets an ignominious ending as his family changes his name after his death, and the $10 million he had allegedly hidden is never recovered.
