Preview: Brothers

Based on the Danish film Brødre (no prizes for guessing the translation there) and taking its inspiration from Homer’s Odyssey, Brothers is an all-star drama, perfect if you don’t fancy the more action-orientated releases this week. An analysis of brotherhood, love, and survival against the odds, Brothers treads a fine line between melodrama and romance, with strong performances from Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Brothers: released Friday 22nd January
