Storyline

Among Brothers is based on the actual events surrounding a cold case. Names are changed for protection. On November 9th, 1994, Jennifer Matthews, a senior at Bergan State University in South Carolina, was found dead in her burned down apartment. The police informed the Matthews family that it appeared to be an accident. Two days later, the autopsy revealed that her death was no accident. There was no presence of smoke in Jennifer's lungs, she died before the fire- someone had killed her and tried to cover it up. Written by Anonymous

This has really turned out to be a very good film! I saw it when it premiered in Charlotte. I was surprised how good of a film it is! It was filmed on a very low budget, but it still has a very professional feel to it.

Among Brothers has an intriguing plot that carries the film from beginning to end. It is engaging and has a very real feeling to it. The amazing thing about this film is that the writer portrayed the killer as the hero of the film. He showed him as basically a good person who made some very bad choices. Even more shocking was the fact that the writer of the film was in fact the brother of the girl who was killed.

There were only a couple things that distracted from the film. A couple times the lighting or a transition between scenes felt a bit off. But then it was filmed on an extremely low budget.

Overall Among Brothers is an extremely entertaining film. I would definitely recommend anyone to see it at least once.
