Sibling rivalry is the focus of this film. A younger, less secure boy falls in the shadow of his older, more popular brother. At his brother's urging he tries out for a school musical and wins the lead. But then he hears his brother bragging about he had gotten the younger brother the role. This causes the boy to drop out of the play, but continuing as the piano accompanist. In that role, he develops a crush on the female lead and love blossoms until the girl comes over to the house. The older brother belittles his brother and the girl shifts her affections. This drive the younger brother into a gang and eventually culminates in an act of revenge.

Funny, touching, emotional debut effort
8 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the San Jose film festival, Cinequest, and found it to be an excellent debut for Kurt Kuenne.

It's the story of two brothers. The younger brother, Curt, lives in the shadow of the older brother. Curt finally begins to become his own man, when he is betrayed by his brother and starts to go down a dark path.

Everyone I talked to, from teenagers to senior citizens, identified with what the characters went through, and Kuenne directed the young cast excellently. Justin Urich (nephew of Robert Urich) plays with a great depth, and made the audience really feel for Curt's plight.

Kuenne may be a rising star, with his talent for comedy, emotional writing, and spectacular direction. He also wrote the fantastic score and edited the movie.

The writing could have been tighter, but as a first feature it shows great promise for everyone involved.
