The film opens to the grotesque heritage of Alabama during the civil rights era and the bombings of the sixties. Desegregation had been demanded by the government. That lead to schools being “forced together” in the early 70’s.
The film is a true story of what happened when one school, Woodlawn, bused about 500 black students to a school of about 2000 white students. A school where an assistant principal is also a football coach from a previously all white team to suddenly a mostly white team with a few black players.

Tom Hanks is known for a lot of different roles in his career. An army sergeant, a police detective, a world traveling simpleton and even an astronaut. But a gangster? Road to Perdition won’t top many charts of all-time best gangster films, but it may be one of the most beautifully made. It won the Oscar for Best Cinematography in 2003, and was nominated for Best Original Score, Best Art Direction, and also earned Paul Newman a nomination for Best Supporting Actor, being the final screenplay Mr. Newman ever appeared in before his death in 2008, according to IMDb. Road to Perdition tells the story of a hitman and his son, and how the choices they make for themselves have dire consequences for each other. (minimal spoilers ahead)
Review by Eric
I grew up with the TMNT. I had nearly every toy made. I even had a couple of costumes. I was excited when I was 8 years old that they were making a live action movie. I got to say, from an 8 year old’s perspective it didn’t disappoint. I had a mix of emotions when I was going to see the 2014 not so “live” action movie. Early on there was talk that the Turtles would be from outer space and other horrible rumors. Because of this my biggest emotion was fear, fear that producers would ruin one of my childhood favorites. (some spoilers ahead)

Summertime movies for me often reflect the age of my children. This review is one such movie.
I recently took my youngest two to see the movie Earth to Echo.
The majority of the movie is with young actors and an actress.
