Storyline

In this tale of resentment, deceit, and sibling rivalry, two adult brothers, Rudy and Paul, represent failure and success. Younger brother Paul is a successful author who writes Harry Potter-like fantasy novels for children. The painful part is that Rudy, an aspiring writer, was Paul's original childhood collaborator on the stories. The one thing they do have in common is their love for Diana. Although Rudy is married to Diana, their divorce is impending-and he currently lives out of his car. Ever the opportunist, Paul makes his move on Diana. Written by Sundance Film Festival

For Lovers of Psychological Backroads
10 November 2010 | by (Old London, New England) – See all my reviews

Rudy's life is disintegrating due to his grinding negativity and resentment at the world - his wife Diana has thrown him out, he's living in his car and he's just lost his dead-end job. As if this were not sufficient humiliation, his brother Paul is a successful writer of fantasy fiction, and visiting town on a promotional tour for his new book. Sibling rivalry prompts Rudy to persuade Diana to conceal the failure of his marriage, and pretend they are still living together.

When this pathetic deception comes apart at the seams, the fallout pushes Diana into the arms of Paul - and unfortunately for Rudy, they have always found each other attractive. "Lovers of Hate" sets off as if it intends to be a quirky offbeat comedy, but it soon ventures into darker territory. As the story unfolds, the film turns into an entirely original entity, combining elements of suspense, black comedy, psychological mystery and romance. The three actors give nuanced and believable performances as their characters get lost in a triangular labyrinth of twisty side-roads - and except for the die-hard fan of conventional romantic comedies, their journey is full of interest.
