Brothers (2009)

Action, Drama, Thriller |

Brothers is a American psychological drama war film directed by Jim Sheridan and written by David Benioff. A remake of the 2004 Danish film, it follows Captain Sam Cahill, a presumed-dead prisoner of the War in Afghanistan who deals with post-traumatic stress while reintegrating into society following his release from captivity. The film also stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Cahill’s brother and Natalie Portman as his wife. Both films take inspiration from Homer’s epic poem, the Odyssey.

The film received a mixed to positive response and grossed $43 million. Maguire received particular praise for his performance and received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for his performance.

Sam Cahill is a U.S. Marine captain, about to embark on his fourth combat deployment. He is a steadfast family man married to his high school sweetheart, Grace, and together, they raise two young daughters, Isabelle and Maggie. Sam’s brother Tommy is being released from prison for an armed robbery, before Sam departs to Afghanistan in October 2007. Sam deploys and after a bit of time, news comes that Sam’s Blackhawk helicopter has crashed during an operation in the Helmand Province, killing all of the Marines aboard. In reality, he and a hometown friend, Private Joe Willis, have been taken prisoner in a mountain village by Taliban Fighters.
