Movie Info

A man searching for the truth about his brother finds out more than he ever expected to learn in this semi-improvised independent drama. Abe Polonski (Richard Edson) works in his family's textile business alongside his brothers Ben (Jeff Ware) and Josh (Arnold Barkus). One day, Josh is shot to death while leaving the shop with Abe; while Ben warns him to stay out of it, Abe is determined to find out who killed his brother and why. The deeper Abe digs into his brother's life, though, the more unpleasant surprises he finds; it seems that Josh was involved in some serious financial double-dealings, and Jill (Meg Hartig), the woman he had been dating, is a prostitute. Abe talks to Jill, hoping to find out what his brother was trying to do, and he soon finds himself falling in love with her. Abe is determined to save Jill from a life on the streets, but he finds out the hard way that her pimp isn't willing to let her go. I Am Josh Polonski's Brother was shot in 15 days, using Super-8 film stock, and with much of the dialogue improvised on the spot by the cast; the film was the second feature for Raphael Nadjari, who also worked with Richard Edson on his first feature, The Shade.more

Audience Reviews for I Am Josh Polonski's Brother


The first film I loved. I don't want to see it again I'd be afraid of being disappointed. I remember it being extremely fluid, fun, dense and gritty.
