Here are some still images for Yari Films Group Releasing drama, What Doesn’t Kill You. The film is written by Brian Goodman, Donnie Wahlberg & Paul T. Murray and directed by Brian Goodman. The movie will be opening in theaters December 12, 2008 in New York and Los Angeles
Based on events from director Brian Goodman’s life, “What Doesn’t Kill You” stars Mark Ruffalo (Brian) and Ethan Hawke (Paulie) as friends who grew up like brothers on the gritty streets of south Boston . They do whatever it takes to survive, living by the code of their dog-eat-dog neighborhood. Petty crimes and misdemeanors grow into more serious offenses and eventually, they fall under sway to organized crime boss Pat Kelly (played by Goodman). As Brian becomes increasingly lost in a haze of drugs and ‘jobs,’ even the love he has for his wife (Am and a Peet) and his children does not seem like it will be enough to redeem him. Meanwhile, Paulie plans “one last heist” but knows it will take both of them to pull it off. How can they escape the only life they know?
