Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
Loyalty. It's all relative.
You really should have told us about your gun...
This crime thriller examines the aftermath of a 'perfect' crime which goes horribly wrong. Two brothers in desperate need of cash, decide to rob their parent's jewelry store. However, a third accomplice brings a real gun instead of a fake one, and to their surprise, mom pulls out a piece too. The resulting bloodbath leaves two dead and three confused. As the brothers try to deal with the implications of what happened, they also have personal issues between them, as the one brother is sleeping with the other's wife.
