BROTHERS

O BROTHERS what art thou? A domestic melodrama? A war film? A post traumatic stress profile? The screenplay is a creaky amalgam, transitions are clumsy, and the resolution much too pat. So why was I so affected? Because of the sheer star power of Tobey and Jake, two actors so incandescent they radiate every moment on screen. The first half of the movie is Gyllenhaal's, the second half Maguire's. Together, they embody the best of mainstream Hollywood filmmaking. — Jeff Schultz
