What Doesn't Kill You Trailer
Ruffalo and Hawke turn to crime

The trailer for What Doesn't Kill You is now online, with Mark Ruffalo and Ethan Hawke starring as childhood friends who have turned to crime on South Boston's depressed seats.

Ruffalo  plays Brian, a petty thief who has grown up with Paulie (Hawke) and joined a local gang of criminals. But after getting into trouble with the law, Brian has trouble reconciling his work, and friendship with Paulie, with his duties to his wife (Amanda Peet) and son.

The film was written and directed by Brian Goodman, and is a largely autobiographical tale of his early life. Donnie Wahlberg also had a hand in the scripting, because it is against the law to make a Boston-set film without the involvement of a Wahlberg / Damon / Affleck family member somewhere in there.

Like the crime version of Narc.It has that same feel and look. Performances seem solid. It should be a good trip to the flicks More
