Chicago Sun-Times - 12/02/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Sheridan and his screenplay sources make BROTHERS much more than a drama about war and marriage. It is about what we can forgive ourselves for..."
New York Times - 12/04/2009
"Mr. Sheridan has an especially good touch with children, and the scenes with Ms. Geare and Ms. Madison -- grieving, playing, fussing with each other -- are the finest and truest in the movie."
Washington Post - 12/04/2009
