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 has thrown him out, he's living in his car and he's just lost his dead-end job. As if this were not humiliation enough, his brother Paul, a successful writer of fantasy fiction, is coming to town on a promotional tour for his new book. Sibling rivalry prompts Rudy to hide the failure of his marriage from Paul, so he persuades his estranged wife, Diana, to pretend that they are still married for the night. When Rudy's pathetic deception comes apart at the seams, the fallout pushes Diana into the arms of his brother - and unfortunately for Rudy, they have always found each other attractive. The real story of "Lovers of Hate" begins to unfold from this point, the film setting off as if it intends to be a quirky offbeat comedy, but it soon ventures into darker territory. By the time it concludes it has turned into an entirely original entity, combining elements of suspense, black comedy, psychological mystery and romance. The three principal actors each give nuanced and believable performances as their characters get lost in a labyrinth of twisty side-roads. Unless one happens to be a fan of predictable escapist romantic comedies, it's a trip worth taking.
