Road to Perdition (2002)


Coming Out at 12 July 2002 in theaters

Crime, Drama, Thriller

Road to Perdition is crime drama film directed by Sam Mendes. The screenplay was adapted by David Self from the graphic novel of the same name written by Max Allan Collins and illustrated by Richard Piers Rayner. The film stars Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, Jude Law, and Daniel Craig. The plot takes place in 1931, during the Great Depression, following a mob enforcer and his son as they seek vengeance against a mobster who murdered the rest of their family.

Filming took place in the Chicago area. Mendes, having recently finished 1999’s acclaimed American Beauty, pursued a story that had minimal dialogue and conveyed emotion in the imagery. Cinematographer Conrad L. Hall took advantage of the environment to create symbolism for the film, for which he won several awards, including a posthumous Academy Award for Best Cinematography. The film explores several themes, including the consequence of violence and father-son relationships.

In 1931, during the Great Depression, Michael Sullivan, Sr. is an enforcer for Irish mob boss John Rooney in Rock Island, Illinois. Rooney raised the orphan Sullivan and loves him more than his own biological son, Connor. Rooney holds a wake in his home for the brother of an associate, Finn McGovern. McGovern is clearly agitated and indirectly suggests the Rooney family is responsible. Rooney sends Connor and Sullivan to meet with McGovern, under orders just to talk, but Connor shoots him, resulting in Sullivan gunning down McGovern’s men. Sullivan’s twelve-year-old son Michael Jr. has hidden in his father’s car and witnesses the event. Sullivan swears his son to secrecy and Rooney gets his own personal assurance. Rooney pressures Connor to apologize for his reckless action.
