On a cold morning in country Victoria, two brothers arrive at the family home intent on murdering their step-father Roger (Kim Gyngell). Terry (Shane Jacobson) and Jeff (Clayton Jacobson)s motive is simple, killing their step-dad will render their dying Mother (Lynette Curran)s plan to change her will in his favor, redundant. The staged suicide has been meticulously planned but there is one thing the boys didnt take into account, spending an entire day together. Old grudges, different worldviews and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other. Brothers Nest is the very blackest of comedies about family, loyalty and murdercos after all blood is thicker than water. The two brothers have either overestimated their luck or underestimated the old mans will to live. Anyway, as a rule, just dont start what you cant finish, and dont forget about Murphys law.
Critic Reviews For Brothers' Nest
- “Though brimming with pitch-black comedy, "Brothers' Nest” actually plays like more of an absurdist tragedy as it pits good brother against good-brother-gone-bad in a cautionary tale of longing and desperation that packs a surprisingly affecting punch." – Eddie Cockrell , Variety
- “This is a comedy that's blacker than pitch, and tethered enough to unexaggerated human behavior that it can really commit to the consequences of its characters' colossal stupidity.” – Harry Windsor , Hollywood Reporter
- " A perfectly executed blend of twisted family dramatics, black comedy and bloody violence, told through a pitch-perfect level of tension sure to make the coolest of cat sweat bullets." – Matthew Pejkovic , Matt's Movie Reviews
