David Ansen of Newsweek has posted his Brothers review and its another positive one. Shouldn’t be long till we get the real glut of reviews.
Portman has some of the most difficult scenes, and this is her most accomplished work since Closer. But Brothers is Maguire’s movie. So gaunt that he almost looks like a ghost, he bites into his character like a rabid dog. Brothers shows us that even when our troops do come home, their war may be far from over.
