    I saw the film, and I’m not too sure what Wesley Morris is talking about in his review. This was a powerful powerful film. Here’s another review I found online: “One Of The Most Powerful Films I Have Ever Seen – Brothers Will Literally Leave You Breathless.  Tobey Maguire Gives The Performance Of His Career – A Sure Bet Some Oscar Time”.
