Captivating story with unique point-of-view
27 May 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

"Among Brothers" is based on a true story of an unsolved murder on a college campus. What's very unique and interesting to me about it, to begin with, is that the story was written by the brother of the murder victim, and yet, the alleged murder is the protagonist of the film. Imagine that -- writing a film about the murder of your sister and making her killer the hero. This set-up creates a very honest and engaging spin on the murder/mystery film. Additionally, the performances of the main actors, all newcomers, were sincere and captivating. I saw this film at the Palm Beach Film Festival where the audience went crazy. One elderly woman in particular gushed about the film, the storytelling ability of its director and the great performances, and with good reason -- it's a great film. Definitely check it out if you get the chance.
