According to the movie's IMDb trivia page:

What does the title have to do with the movie?

The title comes from a scene in which Crawford tells Willy about his first experience candling eggs (holding an egg up to the light of a candle and looking for imperfections) on his grandfather's egg farm. 'He told me to put all the eggs that were cracked or flawed into a bucket for the bakery,' he explains. 'He came back an hour later, and there were 300 eggs in the bakery bucket...I had found a flaw in every single one of them...thin places in the shell and fine hairline cracks. You look closely, enough,' he goes on, 'and you find that everything has a weak spot where it can break sooner or later.' He then assures Willy that he has already found his weak spot, his crack, the hairline fracture of his character. 'You're a winner, Willy,' Crawford concludes.
