Andy (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a big wig accountant, and Hank (Ethan Hawk) , a hard working man, are brothers living in two different worlds, but are brought closer when money becomes an issue for both of them. Hank needs money for child support from his recent divorce, and Andy has some money problems of his own. The two decide to knock off a small "mom and pop" jewelry store that is in the neighborhood near them. The only catch is that this jewelry store is quite literally their Mom and Pop's jewelry store. During the robbery things go array and things happen that neither of them anticipated. After the heist things start to go downhill for both men, and this film shows brilliantly their downward spiral and where no good deeds will lead those who do them. Andy's wife, Gina (Marissa Tomei), adds to the problems of both of the men. This film is filled with deceit, murder, robbery, suspense, and much much more. How will it end up? Watch and find out.
