Andy and his younger brother Hank are suffering from financial problems. They organize the robbery of a suburban mom-and-pop jewellery store as a quick victimless and fix for their situations. The perfect crime begins to go awry when they discover the store belongs to their parents.
Sidney Lumet, whose first film was the classic 12 Angry Men, cast Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman as (unintendedly) evil brothers for his last. A heist thriller in which moral standards and familial ties disintegrate as fast as the tension boils, reaching an explosive finale.
