Storyline

Cal and Aaron are two brothers whose relationship is clearly very troubled. Cal forms a friendship with a young man, Cassius, from a very different background (including the fact that he is African-American). When Aaron goads Cassius into a fight at a Christmas party, and Cal stands by his newfound friend, a series of events begins that exacerbates the tensions between the siblings into open hostility and finally, real conflict.

Wonderful debut film, with fresh visual style
29 April 1999 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

A hometown boy makes good with Brother Tied. It's so refreshing to see something come out of Colorado and gain recognition, other than South Park. Shot mainly in black and white, this film introduces Derek Cianfrance's great work behind the camera. The story of two brothers, who seem to be anything but that, and the struggles between them when one becomes best friends with a black man. The story pulls you along but it's the cinematography that pulls you in. And as an added bonus, people get to see a little slice of Longmont, Colorado (anything at the barber shop).
