Synopsis


Brothers
Jim Sheridan's film, adapted from Susanne Bier's 2004 movie, concerns Captain Sam Cahill (Tobey Maguire), a Marine who receives orders to ship out for yet another tour of duty in Afghanistan. But before he leaves his supportive wife, Grace (Natalie Portman), and his two elementary-school-age daughters, Sam picks up his black sheep brother, Tommy (Jake Gyllenhaal), who has finished a prison stretch for robbing a bank. While overseas, Sam's aircraft gets shot down and he's thought dead. Back home, irresponsible Tommy gets his act together in order to be an anchor for Grace and the girls, and the two grow emotionally -- though not physically -- close. As the family finally begins to make peace with their grief, soldiers rescue POW Sam and he returns home. Sam's experiences overseas have caused him such emotional turmoil, he has a difficult time adjusting to civilian life, and soon his fear and paranoia manifest themselves in the form of jealousy for his brother's relationship with his wife. Sam Shepard and Mare Winningham co-star as the brothers' father and stepmother. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    I remember seeing this movie when I was young teenager. I remember the only reason why I watched is because it had Toby Mcguire from Spiderman. Another reason why I watched the movie is because my sister left to the Marines/Bootcamp and the movie is about a Marine. I like the military aspect of the movie and how it can affect an individual and their family. It a sad story but at times it can be true. Im saddened with what happen to my sister but I am also happy when did have to through what the main character had to go through in this movie. It is something you will not want to experience, but it is something you want to see in a live action film and this is why I highly recommend "Brothers".

    Not their best

    The movie had the potential to be better than it actually was. I'm a big Tobey and Jake fan and this movie wasn't their best. You get frustrated with Tobey's character most of the movie and the main focus isn't even on the two brothers. The preview misleads you and some of the scenes they show in the preview aren't even in the movie. The plot was boring. I just wished it would've been better than it was.

    Acting in this movie is top notch, from the experience actors, all the way to the young children actors. The writing and directing is also amazing. The director really knows how to make you feel part of this movie. I would be surprised if anyone could watch Brothers without being affected by it. Great movie.

    This movie made me so emotional, and I don't usually get emotional with movies. This story is insane & so is the trailer, which is the reason I decided to purchase this movie. It makes you think about things in such a deep way like wow. It's like what would you do in that situation!

    This movie is one of my favorites. Toby Maguire and Natalie Portman give powerhouse performances about a man captured and tortured, returning from Afganistan, trying to integrate himself back to his family.

    Jake G. Suburb as always. Love Natalie P. She is always wonderful. Engrossing and suspenseful. These things do happen to people and vets. Realistically portrayed.
