Hall's catalog of films and his influence on the next generation of film-makers, as well as an interactive exploration of the people and events that inspired the film.
Road to Perdition tells the story of two fathers: Michael Sullivan (Hanks, Charlie Wilson's War), a hit man for the mob, and John Rooney (Newman, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), Michael's boss. Their sons Michael Sullivan, Jr. (Tyler Hoechlin) and Connor Rooney (Craig, Quantum of Solace) are each desperate to win their father's favour. Jealousy and competition put all four on a dangerous collision course, ultimately leading to the death of Sullivan Snr's wife (Leigh, Weeds) and youngest son, Peter (Liam Aiken), and setting the remaining Sullivans on a journey fuelled by revenge...
