Our review of Capone starring Tom Hardy, Linda Cardellini and Matt Dillon. Once a ruthless businessman and bootlegger who ruled Chicago with an iron fist, Alfonse Capone was the most infamous and feared gangster of American lore. At the age of 47, following nearly a decade of imprisonment, dementia rots Alfonse’s mind and his past becomes present. Harrowing memories of his violent and brutal origins melt into his waking life. As he spends his final year surrounded by family with the FBI lying in wait, this ailing patriarch struggles to place the memory of the location of millions of dollars he hid away on his property.

We also talk with actor Natalie Sharp. Natalie recently appeared in two episodes of The Flash as Sunshine, a brand new character created for the television series. Natalie Sharp is a Canadian actress, singer and songwriter from Vancouver BC. TV credits include Loudermilk, You Me Her, Motive and Supernatural.
