Available on Netflix, it is one of those perfect Hollywood movies that have it all – a superb plotline, exceptional performances, fantastic casting, and applaud-worthy directing. 

The Godfather is centered around the mafia world and is relatable because of its family drama. The narration based on Mario Puzo’s novel is about the influential Italian-American mob family of Don Vito Corleone, who decides to hand the reign of his empire to his son.
