Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead with Ethan Hawke


BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD 07-25-2006 Director: Sidney Lumet DP: Ron Fortunato Shoot Day 12 Scene 64 (Int) Hospital entrance "Andy & Gina meet Hank. They learn that Nanette is in I.C.U." Philip Seymour Hoffman (Andy) Ethan Hawke (Hank) Marisa Tomei (Gina) Photo Credit - Will Hart

Needing some quick cash, brothers Andy and Hank set up the perfect crime to rob their own parents’ jewelry store. Their plan is far from foolproof, and when the job goes amiss the furious family patriarch takes matters into his own hands, unaware that he is hunting down his own sons. The plot quickly shifts from classic crime to a drama that skillfully explores family dysfunction. The film’s quiet, subtle tones, combined with shifting points of view and expert acting, claim it a spot among the classics. Discussion with actor Ethan Hawke, moderated by Elizabeth Flock (PBS NewsHour)
