When the soldier is shot down, his brother starts helping his wife and two kids, assuming that the soldier is now dead. However he survived, and after spending an unpleasant time with the Taliban, arrives back home... and is not happy with what he finds.

C. Fuchs quote icon As it stands, it's good, but the ironic thing is that the best moments in Brothers have to do with the young sisters in it.

Tomatometer quote iconIt plays more like a traditional melodrama than the Susanne Bier film that inspired it, but Jim Sheridan's Brothers benefits from rock-solid performances by its three leads.
