ANGELIKA’S NOTE

A mob enforcer's son witnesses a murder, forcing him and his father to take to the road, and his father down a path of redemption and revenge.

Oscar winner Tom Hanks (SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, FORREST GUMP) leads in the film that was heralded by Newsday as "a gorgeous eyeful and earful of a gangster drama."
