Last week we posted the first trailer to the Jim Sheridan drama Brothers. The film is a remake of the 2004 film by Susanne Bier entitled, Brodre. In this English language version, Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman, and Jake Gyllenhaal find themselves in an unexpected love triangle. The film centers on a young wife and mother (Portman) trying to put her life back together after her husband (Maguire) goes missing in Afghanistan. With the help of his younger brother (Gyllenhaal) things begin to fall back in place, that is until her husband makes a surprise return from the presumed dead.

There are so many things wrong with this picture. Tobey Maguire’s emaciated frame, paired with Jake’s voyeuristic gaze, and Natalie’s oblivious to both. I rarely say this, but I love everyone in the main cast of this film. I’m a fan of all of their work, and unlike a lot of other young Hollywood actors they can actually…act. Brothers will be released in theaters on December 4 of this year.
What do you think of the first official poster for Brothers?
