The man who was willing to pay the price for power.
Directed by Danny DeVito, Hoffa tells the life story of Jimmy Hoffa (Jack Nicholson), a man who rose from the ranks of a street-fighting truck driver to become the well-groomed organiser of the Teamsters - the most powerful union on the planet. Despite Hoffaâ€™s all-American pursuit of power amongst the underworld of organised labour and crime, his loyalties remain as unassailably intact to his wife and daughter as they do to his blue-collared comrades. Bobby Ciaro (Danny DeVito) is a trucker who Hoffa meets on the road, at first scared to join the Teamsters, but soon becoming Hoffaâ€™s loyal aide and friend. Written by David Mamet, Hoffa is a provocative exposÃ© of the uses and abuses of power.
