A moralistic black drama that makes its points with a heavy hand and unconvincing story developments.

A young man takes an awfully long time to discover what the audience already knows -- that his disabled brother is the most precious thing in his life -- in My Brother.

Its earnest tone, moving orchestral score and strong cast carry it past the rough patches.
| Original Score: 3/5

My Brother is a brave little film, with the emphasis on little. Shot on a shoestring, it lacks the polish of many indie efforts but compensates with bold casting and a big heart.

My Brother is brimming with would-be life lessons. But the movie goes in so many directions, and follows through on so few of them, that all it transmits is a vague glow. It's watered-down chicken soup for the soul.

What starts as a taut urban crime drama quickly sags into lurid after-school-special sentimentality.

[A] torpid, independently made urban melodrama.
