Brothers Review (2009)

A military wife grows closer to  her husband's troubled brother after he is goes missing during his latest tour of duty.  A great cast including Tobey MacGuire, Jake Gyllennhal and Natalie Portman delivers mixed results.  The film has some very effective scenes that are benefited from the amazing performances that make it worth watching  IF you can deal with predictable melodrama.  I find it easy to connect to Natalie Portman that often comes across as a real person rather than a character - except in the case of the Star Wars prequels, where she came across as a rock.  6.5 stars out of 10
