'What Doesn't Kill You' film site launches
Take a sneak peek of the official film site for the made-in-Boston film "What Doesn't Kill You" here starring Mark Ruffalo, Ethan Hawke and Amanda Peet. Brian Goodman, the director and inspiration of this real-life tale of redemption, tends bar in the above clip from a Southie watering hole.
Based on comments after the preview at Brandeis in Waltham on Nov. 15, the flick is a winner.
"Look out 'Departed,' 'Gone Baby Gone," writes one filmgoer from the Brandeis screening. "Someone finally got a Boston movie right from the accents, to the whole flavor and story. It was dead on. Its success lies in the realistic portrayal of the grind of the streets. It's not all glamour and shoot 'em up but the day-to-day grind of trying to survive."
The movie is slotted for limited release in NYC and LA on Friday, Dec. 12. Click here for the latest on "What Doesn't Kill You."
