The cast of “The Godfather” and “The Godfather: Part II,” including Al Pacino as Michael Corleone, Robert De Niro (young Vito), Diane Keaton (Kay), Talia Shire (Connie), James Caan (Sonny), Robert Duvall (Tom) and director Francis Ford Coppola reunited on Saturday at Radio City Music Hall to close out the Tribeca Film Festival and discuss the landmark films and moderator Taylor Hackford rightfully called it a historic night.
The Godfather starred Marlon Brando and Al Pacino as the leaders of a fictional New York crime family. The story, spanning 1945 to 1955, chronicled the family under the patriarch Vito Corleone, focusing on the transformation of Michael Corleone (Pacino).
