Brothers Isn't a War Movie. Just Ask Jake Gyllenhaal.

30 November 2009 11:45 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Brothers is many things: a family drama, a study of grief, an exploration of the darkest reaches of human nature, and a remake. One thing it isn't? A war movie. At least according to the people who made it.

"Obviously a big part of the movie is the war," producer Ryan Kavanaugh told Movieline, "but we don't really see it as a war movie, per se." Is this a clever marketing ploy on Kavanaugh's part? A sly verbal manipulation to distance it from previous box office failures? Kavanaugh admits to dabbling previously in what one might call "categorically lax" marketing tactics. "I made a movie called 3:10 to Yuma," he admits, "which we called an 'adventure thriller.'" One can only wonder what kind of semantic slight of hand Kavanaugh could apply to Brothers. Sibling conflict drama? Romantic psycho-dramedy? »
