2007. USA. 117 min. English.
Director: Sidney Lumet Featuring: Ethan Hawke, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Albert Finney
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)
