About Public Enemies
Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Michael Mann directs this adaptation of Brian Burrough's best-seller about famed government agent Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) and his attempt to stop John Dillinger (Academy Award-nominee Johnny Depp) and his gang. The 1930s-set drama depicts a lawless time in American history that made a stable of gangsters, of whom Dillinger was most notorious, front page celebrities. Efforts to thwart the high profile criminals led to the formation of what is now known as the FBI. The all-star cast also includes Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard, Billy Crudup, Channing Tatum, and Lili Taylor.
