Road to Perdition
written by David Self, from the graphic novel by Max Allan Collins and Richard Piers Rayner

Michael Sullivan Jr.: I saw then that my father 's only fear. was that his son would follow the same road. ... And that was the last time I ever held a gun. People always thought I grew up on a farm. And I guess... in a way... I did. But I lived a lifetime before that, in those six weeks on the road in the winter of 1931. When people ask me if Michael Sullivan was a good man or if there was just no good in him at all, I always give the same answer. I just tell them he was my father.

Kudos and many thanks to Len for reminding me of this monologue, it is very much appreciated.
