BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD
Acclaimed filmmaker Sidney Lumet (Dog Day Afternoon) directs this absorbing suspense thriller about a family facing the worst enemy of all itself.
Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Andy, an overextended broker who lures his younger brother, Hank (Ethan Hawke) into a larcenous scheme: the pair will rob a suburban mom-and-pop jewelry store that appears to be the quintessential easy target. The problem is, the store owners are Andy and Hanks actual mom and pop and, when the seemingly perfect crime goes awry, the damage lands right at their doorstep.
Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei plays Hoffmans trophy wife, who is having a clandestine affair with Hawke, and the stellar cast also includes Albert Finney as the family patriarch who pursues justice at all costs, completely unaware that the culprits he is hunting are his own sons.
A tense heist-gone-wrong drama in the tradition of Kubrick's The Killing and Lumets own The Anderson Tapes, BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOW YOURE DEAD is smart enough to know that we often have the most to fear from those who are near and dear.
