What Doesn't Kill You    (DVD)

Brian (Mark Ruffalo) and Paulie (Ethan Hawke) are lifelong friends who have grown up like brothers on the gritty streets of South Boston. They do whatever it takes to survive, starting early as street thugs living by the criminal code, doing petty crimes and misdemeanours that have now grown into increasingly more serious offences. Eventually they fall under the sway of organised crime boss Pat Kelly (Brian Goodman). As Brian becomes increasingly lost in a haze of drugs and jobs, even the love he has for his wife (Amanda Peet) and their two sons does not seem like it will be enough to redeem him. As Paulie plans one last heist, that will take the two of them to pull off, Brian is torn between the desire to be a good husband and the lure of easy money. He is now forced into making the hardest choice of his life.

Everyone has a choice. Every choice has a consequence.
For his assured directorial debut, character actor Brian Goodman reaches into his troubled past. WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU tells the tale of two best friends who grew up in South Boston and fell into a life of petty crime. Brian (Mark Ruffalo) has a beautiful wife (Amanda Peet) and two children, but his addiction to drugs and alcohol keeps him from becoming the father he should be. Paulie(Ethan Hawke) is determined to make a big score so that they can stop scraping by and retire in style. But when a local police officer (co writer Donnie Wahlberg) finally catches them in the act, they are forced to serve time in jail. Upon returning home, Brian must confront the painful truth that crime is the only life that he knows. Yet, as difficult as it seems, he struggles to clean up his act once and for all, in order to make sure that he never has to leave his family behind again.
