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 relentless negativity and resentment at the world, which has led to a situation where he's lost his dead-end job, his wife Diana has thrown him out of their home and he's living in his car. As if this weren't sufficiently humiliating, his brother Paul is a successful writer of fantasy fiction, who is visiting town on a promotional tour for his new book. Sibling rivalry prompts Rudy to persuade Diana to hide their marriage break-up and pretend they're still living together. When this pathetic deception comes apart at the seams, the fallout pushes Diana into the arms of Paul, who has always been attracted to his sister-in-law.

'Lovers of Hate' sets off as if it intends to be a quirky offbeat comedy, but soon ventures into darker territory. The three actors turn in fine performances as Rudy, Paul and Diana fall deeper into a claustrophobic labyrinth of deceit. The film soon turns into an entirely original entity, combining elements of suspense, romance, mystery and black comedy. As the story unfolds, the three characters struggle to extricate themselves from their increasingly volatile predicament.
