About the Movie

Captain Sam Cahill (Maguire) is embarking on his fourth tour of duty, leaving behind his beloved wife (Portman) and two daughters. When Sam’s Blackhawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains of Afghanistan, the worst is presumed, leaving an enormous void in the family. Despite a dark history, Sam’s charismatic younger brother Tommy (Gyllenhaal) steps in to fill the family void.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Sheridan seems as conflicted as the Cahills about their virtues and failings. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Brothers is that rare type of film; one that feels real and true, never forcing itself to conform to the expectations of what a movie should contain. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Oct 21, 2014

Fresh: Director Sheridan effectively contrasts the domestic character-driven drama set in suburban America with genuinely harrowing and authentic war sequences. – Gavin Bond, Sunday Times (Australia), Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If you like to have your heart wrenched out in the cinema, this is for you. Even though it's a remake of the outstanding 2004 Danish original directed by Suzanne Bier (released here in 2006), Brothers carries a mighty payload of drama – Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

A story that will haunt you.

A realistic story of a POW with post tramatic stress and how it affects his family. The choices he has to make are chilling and the torment and horror leaves you with wonder on what you would do if it had been you. A great film that you will be talking about long after it's over.

Melodrama done right

Don't go into this movie thinking it's all happy and jolly. It is, in fact, one of the most depressing movies I've seen. Brothers succeeds because of its deft leads (Gyllenhaal, Portman, Mcquire) with Mcguire shining above the pack. Buy it! You won't regret it.

very good!

This was such a good movie and very well done. Jake gyllenhall, tobey maguire and natalie portman all did a great job. The story was written so well it blew me away! dont rent buy!
