Today I was torn. Torn as to whether to support the 1st Black Disney heroine, or take in a serious drama with a stellar cast. I chose the latter (and Jake Gyllenhaal LOL) with no regrets. Brothers was an excellent movie, and here’s a brief synopsis fo those of you who haven’t seen it: Capt. Sam Cahill (Tobey McGuire) is deployed to Afghanistan and after being presumed dead, his grieving wife Grace (Natalie Portman) and their two daughters are comforted by his black sheep brother Tommy (Gyllenhaal).
I thought the trailer gave the movie away, but the movie is far deeper than the love triangle that is portrayed, and McGuire quickly makes you forget Spiderman in what has got to be the best role of his career. I give this movie five stars!!
