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

What make a "truthful" film
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best films are those done where the people involved have a personal commitment to telling the story, and where risks are taken. Tom Morgan took a risk in bringing this story to light through his writing. I believe he made the murderer the protagonist in order to try to figure out the "why" part of the story. John Schwert took a risk by literally putting everything he had on the line to bring it to film. By using unknown actors, he was able to bring out the believability factor. It had the same impact, in my mind as the film Boys Don't Cry. The first time I saw that, I walked out in the middle because I was so caught up in the story that I couldn't bear it. Among Brothers had the same overwhelming effect. I saw the Charlotte premiere. I'm so proud that John chose to make the film in Charlotte, using many local actors and crew. I was also an extra in the film. John even listed all of the extras in his ending credits. What a generous thing to do. Also, the incidental music and score done by Concentrix, beautifully complimented the film.
