Depressing story but very well made - Before the Devil Knows You're Dead review by Rubber Ducky

Spoiler Alert
04/04/2008

An extremely well acted and directed film, showcasing the talents of Lumet and the cast, particularly Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke. The story is about 2 brothers who have got themselves into difficulties financially and are looking for an easy way out. Hawke plays the weak, easily led brother whilst Seymour Hoffman is the seemingly successful one with a high powered job and a fat salary. The idea is to rob a jewellery store; the twist being it belongs to their parents. Hawke can't go through with it alone and engages a seedy friend to help, and that's where the problems start. The story has a shocking and depressing ending, but it is worth watching for the excellent performances from the cast.
