Not North by Northwest. It is a more recent movie released in the 2000's.

The notable actors who spoke the lines or whose character was referred to in the quotes are:
- Jude Law
- Paul Newman
- Daniel Craig
- Tom Hanks
It was Paul Newman's last movie and he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Bonus clue: The movie is based on a graphic novel by Max Allan Collins.

I have the graphic novel out from the library and am about halfway through. Good stuff! I hadn't remembered there was a movie, so thanks for the suggestion!

Road to Perdition.

A modern take on a classic:

Road to Perdition - correct!

"This is the life we chose, the life we lead. And there is only one guarantee: none of us will see Heaven."

I was inspired to use this movie because of a recent article I read where Tom Hanks said that no one mentions Road to Perdition when they talk about his career and that he thinks it is one of his best movies. I would agree. For those of you who haven't seen it I would highly recommend it. What a cast! Tom Hanks plays against type as a mob enforcer, Paul Newman is the mob boss, Daniel Craig is his worm of a son and Jude Law is a photographer who photographs the dead at crime scenes as well as taking on nefarious side jobs. It's an excellent movie I think flew under a lot of peoples' radar.

I'd not heard of it (but then, I haven't seen a movie in a theatre for well over a decade, and often missed out on things before that). I'll see if we can find it on DVD at the library. I like all of those actors, so I'd love to see what they achieve together.

Stanley Tucci also appears in a small role as Frank Nitti who was the money man for Al Capone's mob family in Chicago. Tucci is one of my favorite character actors.

Fashionable: you know, you could de-emphasize your nose if you wore something larger, like... Wyoming.

Reaaally sounds like Jay (of Jay & Silent Bob). Maybe Chasing Amy?
Nope. It's a modern version of a (real) classic. The lead is a Grammy-award winning banjo player.

A: What am I afraid of her for? She's no rocket scientist.
B: Well, actually, she is a rocket scientist.
