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

excellent adaptation
13 June 2005 | by daniel-polowySee all my reviews

Great film. Knowing this was based on a true story made you really want to get inside these characters' heads. I enjoyed the flashback scenes as well, as they mixed up the speed of the film. Working with an unsolved mystery allows some artistic license and that was a big part of this film. It also allowed the viewer to create their own theories on what may or may not have happened. I left with some interesting questions in my mind. Mostly wondering what it was like to be a part of this tragedy when it actually occurred. What were the students thinking? What were the police missing? Really brings some unheard, untold tragedies to light. Looking forward to John's next project.
