In the aftermath of a brutal fraternity hazing death, a college freshman's desire to join the best fraternity on campus is compromised when his older brother launches an anti-hazing crusade. A modern retelling of ancient Greek mythology, HAZE is a sobering, realistic portrait of what truly goes on behind fraternity and sorority house walls.
Tully Coates, Jr., with his good looks and chiseled body, is the local heartthrob, and while he has a new girlfriend virtually every night, he's incapable of getting close to anyone. His younger brother Earl, the shy and sensitive type, frequents the local revival house. The only common bond between these disparate siblings is Ella Smalley, an intelligent and even-tempered young woman who returns to their Nebraska hometown to intern at a local veterinarian's clinic. Meanwhile, their father, Tully, Sr., a rancher who gets by with the help of his two sons, carries a brooding sadness, a hint of past wounds too long in healing. The family dynamic is changed forever when several secrets surface.Written by

this movie is amazing...one of the absolute best i've seen in years! i rented the DVD one weekend and watched this movie six times...i now own it and never tire of it.
i wish i had the vocabulary to describe it as it should be. i loved everything about it...the acting, the characters were familiar and real, nothing contrived. i loved the simplicity of their relationships...one of my favorites is that between Tully Sr. and Claire. i loved the landscape and scenery...the family home, barns, corn fields, the movie theater, bar, and grocery in town.
i grew up in the midwest and have since moved, but was transported back while watching this...the same small town, farms, and fields. Tully Jr. and Earl actually reminded me of my own brothers and their relationship.
the music was great and complemented the movie...very simple, subtle, beautiful!
