The 5 most gripping characters from BOARDWALK EMPIRE:
- Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg)
- Chalky White (Michael Kenneth Williams)
- Gaston Means (Stephen Root)
- Meyer Lansky (Anatol Yusef)
- Richard Harrow (Jack Huston)
BOARDWALK EMPIRE [seasons 1-5] ★★★★☆
Al Capone, Bugsy Siegel, Meyer Lansky, and they are only the secondary characters.
Damage and collateral damage. The sheer volume of deaths gets disheartening. A gangster saga that has power in the less obvious moments.

Is this going to be another portrayal of London with a lack of diversity, not reflecting the metropolis?

To evaluate a film
