No One Goes Quietly…
‘Boardwalk Empire’ is set in Atlantic City during Prohibition, when the sale of alcohol became illegal throughout the United States.
It was a time of change: women gained the right to vote, broadcast radio spread the news, young people ruled the world, and criminals became rich trafficking in illegal alcohol. The undisputed ruler of Atlantic City is Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi), a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role. Nucky has carved out a niche for himself as the man to see for any illegal alcohol. He is an equal opportunity gangster, doing business with Lucky Luciano, Al Capone and Johnny Torrio. This is the complete collection of all 5 series of the Award winning show.
All 56 episodes from every season of the Golden Globe-winning HBO period drama set during the 1920s and early 1930s Prohibition era. Atlantic County Treasurer Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson (Steve Buscemi) sets up a bootlegging business, hoping to get rich. As he progresses in his venture he crosses paths with politicians and mobsters alike but his lavish lifestyle soon leads the federal government to grow suspicious of his activities.
Among the show's executive producers are its creator, ‘The Sopranos’ writer Terence Winter, and Martin Scorsese, who also directed the pilot.
