Identical twins Andy and Pete Goodwynn have always been there for each other. But in a cruel twist of fate, orchestrated by the town's most powerful family, their lives are forever altered. Can the brothers gain vengeance on those who have taken away from them all that matters? While revenge may seem sweet, Brother's Keeper is a powerful reminder that only forgiveness can truly heal.

The movie begins with the date, 1949, showing on the screen. In the scene, the father kills the mother by shooting her with a gun. Later, on the father's gravestone, his date of death is shown as 1948. He apparently shot his wife one year after he died. See more »
I saw this as part of a preview audience. Some movies come together, the writing, directing, and acting take you on a journey. Brother's Keeper is not one of those movies. It was overacted and almost felt like it was directed by two different people with different visions of the film. The casting of Ray Wise's wife was strange, as Robin Lively not only looks younger than she is, she is already over 20 years younger than him. Since this is not a plot point, it just left me wondering why such a mismatch. This was just one of many points of this movie that were painful (over acted court scenes, formulaic "spoiled rich boy" character) My friend who invited me is a closeted man who works for an ultra conservative energy (oil) company and I believe he got the tickets from work. I had the impression that the tickets to the preview were handed out at a megachurch based on the rest of the audience. I was one of the few who walked out of the preview wanting the two hours of my life back, while I heard others muttering and praising its "God" focus. I never saw this movie get a distribution around the Dallas area, so I assume it never found a distributor or never got a wide distribution. All I can say is maybe that was God's will keeping others from suffering through this stinker.
