Excellent film that stays with you long after by challenging a traditionally accepted taboo. The acting by Pitts and Jordan was spot on...and extremely convincing. So much so, that I was only disappointed in the script's ending which was rather unconvincing and fell back on usual expectations. Contrary to other review here..I did not think the film was too slow and the longish scenes really made me feel the depth of the material and very natural human responses - especially surrounding grief and loss. The brothers had so little connection with relatives and location that I could more believably have seen them relocate with the younger under a new name and passed off as partner rather than brother.. this would have really been the more courageous and interesting ending. I don't believe either brother was that concerned about conformity with social norms. What was convincing was the older brother's boyfriend's response: a typical nerdy scientific acceptance and calculation of win / lose game theory. Overall, loved this film!
