I didn’t know what to expect from Brotherhood, an independent award winning film. In the end, it packed quite a punch and could give studio produced films a run for their money. The picture quality wasn’t as crisp and vibrant as a bigger budget film, but the story, the acting, and pace were all top notch.
I was on the edge of my seat for the entire movie. Words that came to mind were gripping, edgy, but realistic. All the actors were amazing, especially the fraternity leader (Jon Foster) and the pledge leader (Trevor Morgan). He actually is a spitting image of a young John Cusack, right down to his speech and mannerisms.
The supporting cast was stellar as well, especially the store clerk and the medical student who provided much needed comedy relief. It was an emotional roller coaster as the Brotherhood went from one life or death situation to the next. If the event wasn’t life or death, it was life changing. Overall, a brilliant movie which provides a dark look at college life, different personalities, human nature, and mob mentality.
Brotherhood blew me away.
FYI: I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 per year. I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $70,000-$90,000 through blogging, professional pet sitting, hubby's reffing, and our rental home.
