SYNOPSIS

Chicago, 1931. Tom Hanks stars in this story of an Irish mobster forced to confront his competing loyalties to his boss and his family after his son inadvertently witnesses a murder.

Sam Mendes’s sumptuously crafted crime drama is a compelling treatise on the consequences of violence. The film’s all-star cast – which includes Jude Law, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Stanley Tucci, Daniel Craig, and screen legend Paul Newman in one of his final roles – bring this classical tale of revenge to life. With its Academy Award winning cinematography, thoughtful editing and spellbinding score, Road to Perdition is one of the most technically accomplished Hollywood productions of the century so far.

Road to Perdition will screen from a rare archival 35mm print.
