About Donnie Brasco

Based on a true story, Donnie Brasco stars Johnny Depp as undercover FBI agent Joe Pistone, who leaves his wife (Anne Heche) and family to infiltrate the mob as the 'jewel man' Donnie Brasco. Donnie manoeuvres his way into the confidence of Lefty Ruggiero (Al Pacino), an aging hitman who never made it to the big time and sees a new future for himself with this smart young thief. Lefty enlists Donnie as his protégé, but Lefty's friendship and loyalty make it hard for Donnie to distance himself emotionally. As Donnie moves deeper into the Mafia, he realizes he's not only crossing the line between federal agent and criminal, but also leading his friend to an almost certain death sentence. In this dangerous duel between family, FBI and a fierce but unwanted friendship, Donnie's loyalties are put to the ultimate test.
