REVIEW:

No life is lived easy, and nobody can live your life. And its cruelty could break you, if you donít fight to survive, and itís your choice to fall or to stand. And its lessons will mold you, define you, and it will become your story to tell. And no life is lived easy, but if it were, would we be who we are today?

A life of crime is all that I know. The streets are hard, cold, and itís so easy to slip through the cracks. Iím struggling to stand, but I am what I have lived. If I were to step away from that, who would I be? Could I survive the normal, everyday life? Would I make something of myself, or would I fail like so many times before? How do I go on when my past clings to me?

The road behind me is long and broken, but I have not walked alone. I found strength in bond, love in heart, and I carried on. But the direction was wrong, leading me into a cage that I may never escape, and if I did not stop walking, I would never be able to turn around. But in turning back, would I have to say good-bye to the one that has carried me, the one that held me strong? Would he give up this life, but I knew that he would not? This is all that he knew, but is it the life meant for me?

There are few heroes today. We see conflicted idols on the news. We read of their addiction, violence, and self-destruction, giving the wrong impression to those looking for role models. We know that there are those risking their lives every day for us, but is that enough? Or is the real hero the one that you come home to, the one that will never leave, and the one to always love you?

Brian Reilly lived a life of crime, running the streets with his childhood friend, Paulie McDougan, but he began to slip through the cracks. Pulled back from the brink of death and addiction, Reilly soon finds himself locked behind bars, bringing him face to face with the cold realization of life, and if he didnít change, he would lose his family for good. And the burden of failure weighs down heavily upon him, but he struggles to turn his life around. And a choice has to be made, one that will leave him behind bars or one that will set him free.

No life is lived easy, and we all have a story to tell. And our true stories mold into movies for the world to see, for everyone to know where we began and how choices led us to here. Our conflict, our drama shines forth through the actors stepping into our shoes and walking down that long road that we have walked, and our lives are wrapped up into a storyline that captivates the minds and hearts of you. And inspiration drifts across meaning that life is not meant to be easy, and we all have a choice. We stand, or we fall.

The heart and soul of What Doesnít Kill You is truly captured by its orchestrated music. Drama echoes deep within its rhythm, pulling at the strings of emotion. Soothing instruments such as the violin whispers of hope through darkness and freedom without struggle, and we are held in tune to the storyline as we watch one manís life unfold. And as the story comes to an end, the music lingers behind, reflecting off the corners of our own lives.
