Frank Falenczyk loves his job. He just happens to be the hit-man for his Polish mob family in Buffalo, New York. But Frank's got a drinking problem and when he messes up a critical assignment that puts the family business in peril, his uncle sends him to San Francisco to clean up his act. Frank is not a touchy-feely kind of guy, but he starts going to AA meetings, gets a sponsor and a job at a mortuary where he falls for the tart-tongued Laurel, a woman who is dangerously devoid of boundaries. Meanwhile, things aren't going well in Buffalo where an upstart Irish gang is threatening the family business. When violence erupts, Frank is forced to return home and with an unlikely assist from Laurel, faces old rivals on new terms. Written by Anonymous

An Edgy Comedy-Drama
18 July 2007 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

"You Kill Me" has a raw, edgy feel that maintains a nice sense of tension throughout the movie keeping the audience off balance. This comedy drama, somewhat dark movie has great subtle wit and humor sparkled throughout the movie as well as a sensitive treatment and paradox of substance abuse AA treatment. Bill Pullman, surprisingly gets to expand his usual character into a more colorful display while Ben Kingsley is his usual competent self. Tea Leoni who also is an executive producer gets to go along for the ride. This movie continues the increasingly smooth blend of comedy-drama into the societal topics of interest. A fun, creative, touching entertainment from IFC films. Eight out Ten Stars.
