Gangs of New York script
Synopsis: Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a young Irish immigrant released from prison. He returns to the Five Points seeking revenge against his father's killer, William Cutting (Daniel Day-Lewis), a powerful anti-immigrant gang leader. He knows that revenge can only be attained by infiltrating Cutting's inner circle. Amsterdam's journey becomes a fight for personal survival and to find a place for the Irish people in 1860's New York.


What's the fight?


The Dead Rabbits against the Native Americans, same as ever. But it'll all

be settled today.


Are you Native or Rabbit?


(points to rabbit on pike)

What do you think?


Looks alright. I'll stand by you, then.



The group now turns down the last corridor, as dim and long as a tunnel.

In the distance, there's a faint glimmer of light and the figure of a MAN

(MONK EASTMAN). VALLON stops near the door.
