Storyline

Among Brothers is based on the actual events surrounding a cold case. Names are changed for protection. On November 9th, 1994, Jennifer Matthews, a senior at Bergan State University in South Carolina, was found dead in her burned down apartment. The police informed the Matthews family that it appeared to be an accident. Two days later, the autopsy revealed that her death was no accident. There was no presence of smoke in Jennifer's lungs, she died before the fire- someone had killed her and tried to cover it up. Written by Anonymous

whose side you are on?
13 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was quite impressed with the film's ability to expose the complex issues running thru all the characters minds. The ability to view all sides of the story is a powerful experience. Usually you can pick whose side you are on and in most cases "the good guy" and stick to it.....not in this movie. You feel sorry for the killer, you get the full picture of how some times real accidents happen, the wrong decisions are made and how they effect so many lives. I liked the emotion expressed while getting to know the characters. They engulf you almost like you are a character in the movie as well. Each character at different points in the film will have you rooting for them. The actors do a great job winning you over. Also knowing that this film is based off of actual events is very humbling.
