After college graduation, Heck Prigusivac heads home to New Pristina, Montana, to get a few things before driving to Seattle to teach Latin. His mother's alcoholism (she needs care Heck can't afford) and his gene pool get in the way: Heck's father was executed for murder, his brother Chick is on death row at the local penitentiary, and Heck's rare personality profile suggest he'd make an excellent executioner. He reluctantly takes the job as prison "closer." There, his life-long sibling rivalry continues, and he's attracted to Dori Dumchovic, Chick's high school girlfriend and the only woman on death row. Will Heck have to put his lover and his own brother to death?Written by
A highway sign seen during Heck's initial drive home lists two towns: New Pristina and New Sarajevo. Their namesakes are the capitals of Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina respectively. See more »
But if the outcome's already predetermined the issue of right and wrong doesn't matter anymore. Not even Zeus had the power over the fates how can I be expected to do any better?

Just sat down to breakfast and this came on Starz. had no idea what to expect. Laughing hysterically, although the subject matter wouldn't make you think so! Crying, (real man-tears) by the end!
Yes it's a dark comedy, think Heathers or something similar. Great cast, non-stop quoteables in it! I know this differs from the other review but I say give it a shot! Jeremy Renner is a hot actor. I saw him in "CSI" and "Dahmer". I'm suggesting this to people who enjoy interesting cinema!
Give it a shot and you should be pleasantly surprised. Christine Ebersole is in it too, and I almost didn't recognize her!
