One of those under-appreciated comedies that really does deserve a much wider audience.
24 February 2017 | by HellmantSee all my reviews

'MY BLIND BROTHER': Four Stars (Out of Five)

A romcom about an overachieving blind man, and his under-appreciated brother, that both fall for the same woman. The movie stars Adam Scott, Nick Kroll and Jenny Slate. It was written and directed by Sophie Goodhart. The film received an indie theatrical release at the Box Office, while it was also made available on video on demand, and it's received mixed review from critics as well. I found it to be mostly entertaining, and well made.

Robbie (Scott) is a blind man that's always trying to prove how much he can still do, despite his disability. He's become quite a cocky asshole because of it. His brother Bill (Kroll) is always forced to assist him on his ventures, while receiving none of the credit. So a very abusive relationship has formed between the two brothers. This only becomes more complicated when they both fall for the same woman (Slate).

The film is very darkly comedic, in a really clever and mostly believable way. The characters all seem like real people, and the performances are all great. This is one of those under-appreciated comedies that really does deserve a much wider audience than it's gotten. Hopefully more people will discover it over time. It's definitely worth a view, I'd say.
