Frank Falenczyk (Ben Kingsley), a hit-man in Buffalo, is trying the patience of his employers. When his drinking problem makes him botch a critical job that puts the family business in jeopardy, his uncle (Philip Baker Hall) sends him to San Francisco to dry out and clean up. Frank is resistant but he has no alternative. In San Francisco, the shifty Dave (Bill Pullman) lines him up with an apartment, a job in a mortuary and a 12-step AA program. At one meeting, Frank strikes up a friendship with Tom (Luke Wilson) who agrees to become his sponsor and, at a funeral, Frank meets the sharp-tongued Laurel (Tèa Leoni) with whom he begins a tentative relationship.
When events in Buffalo come to a head, Frank abandons Laurel and his burgeoning new life to return to Buffalo to make amends and settle a few old scores.
Academy Award winning actor Ben Kingsley (House of Sand and Fog, Sexy Beast) is darkly hilarious as the alcoholic hit-man, with Tèa Leoni (Spanglish, Fun with Dick and Jane) as the straight-talking Laurel. You Kill Me also features an outstanding supporting cast with Luke Wilson (My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Old School), Denis Farina (Snatch, Saving Private Ryan), Philip Baker Hall (Rush Hour 3, Zodiac) and Bill Pullman (Scary Movie 4, The Grudge).
