1863, les Etats-Unis sont au bord de la guerre de Sécession. A New-York, la corruption a peu à peu gagné tous les dirigeants politiques.

C'est en ces temps de chaos qu'Amsterdan Valon (Leonardo DiCaprio), un jeune immigrant irlando-américain, revient aux Five Points. Il n'a qu'un seul but : se venger de William Cutting (Daniel Day-Lewis), alias Bill le Boucher, le puissant chef de gang qui s'oppose farouchement aux immigrants et a tué son père. La quête d'Amsterdan évolue en un combat sans merci, alors qu'éclatent les émeutes sanglantes contre l'armée
The Age of Innocence by Martin Scorsese( Visual )

91 editions published between 1953 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In New York City in the 1870s, a rigid social code governs how people talk, walk, meet, part, dine, earn their livings, fall in love, and marry. Not a word of the code is written down anywhere, but these people have been studying it since they were born. In this elegant milieu, marriages, like treaties between nations, exist to provide for the orderly transmission of wealth; scions of old and rich families understand that their personal desires have no place in the design. One such is Newland Archer, engaged to marry pretty young May Welland. When he becomes entranced with May's cousin Ellen, the notorious Countess Olenska, every member of that class mobilizes to prevent Archer from doing anything that threatens their needs
