Who knows what really happened?
28 September 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Two people died and two people went to jail. That's all we really know. Were the brothers sexually violated? Maybe. Did they think their lives were jeopardy? Maybe. Those were definitely extreme actions to take. They'll spend the rest of their lives in jail. It's a very sad story and I think the film was able to capture a bit of the realism of what happened. Money, abuse, miscommunication, weakness, fear, nightmares, etc. contributed to the deaths of two people and two other people in jail. It could have been avoided but mistakes were made.Now people are dead and in jail and for what? What was accomplished? If these guys were trying to get a way with crime, they bungled every aspect of the murder. But the parents failed in their upbringing and brought about this nightmare.
