Summary: "Sons are put on the Earth to trouble their fathers," growls Paul Newman as mob boss John Rooney. Set in 1931 Illinois, this compelling period gangster film from Oscar(R)-winning director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) focuses on the various father-son relationships that collapse amidst the violence of mob life. Tom Hanks stars as Michael Sullivan, a coldly intelligent enforcer whose father-figure boss Rooney is forced to order Sullivan's death--thanks to the tragic actions of Rooney's own uncontrollable son. With an assassin on his tail who likes to photograph corpses, Sullivan takes his surviving son on the run...while formulating a plan to avenge the brutal slayings of his wife and youngest boy. Jennifer Jason Leigh and Stanley Tucci co-star in this adaptation of the graphic novel by Max Allan Collins and Richard Piers Rayner. Screenplay by David Self. (R) (AC,AL,V)
