15. Road to Perdition
Having achieved something wonderful with American Beauty, director Sam Mendes and composer Thomas Newman teamed up again in 2002 for Road to Perdition, a slick American crime drama starring Tom Hanks and Paul Newman set during the Great Depression of the 1930s. While retaining the same evocative power as his score for American Beauty, Thomas Newman created something significantly grander and more symphonic for Road to Perdition, a move that landed him an Oscar nomination.
