Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Caught between two worlds and two seemingly warring identities, the lead character in Rodney Evans's heartfelt film Brother to Brother wears the weary and worried look of a man divided.
Fresh: The filmmaker finds a way to pay homage to a lesser-known, valiant figure, sympathetically portrayed through Robinson's witty performance.
Fresh: There are a couple of self-conscious moments, to be sure, and some anachronisms, but on the whole, Brother to Brother is a graceful work of range and depth.
Rotten: Not surprising for a film that uses a term paper as a framing device, Brother to Brother feels too much like a school project.
