Movie Info

Be careful who you let play in your virtual sandbox - even if they're old friends. Aaron Clark has it all: financial security, a beautiful wife, and a close-knit circle of old friends. But this cozy life is shattered by the arrival of Teddy, former classmate and proverbial snake. Teddy worms his way back into their lives, 'befriends' Aaron's wife and hijacks Aaron's 40th birthday surprise. He systematically stalks them - at home, at work, and in cyberspace. Bitter over Aaron's success, Teddy pries into his business affairs and hints at improprieties, threatening extortion and revenge. He relentlessly pushes, until Aaron snaps. And suddenly the question on everyone's mind: Is Aaron really the man he appears to be? Or is it true that "Nobody really knows anybody, least of all themselves?" This deep, dark question goes at the heart of human nature, and in Brief Reunion, finds some disturbing and even fatal answers. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Brief Reunion

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (5)

  • A movie like this should be a tightening noose as your anxiety for the main character keeps rising. Aaron is charmless, self-absorbed and perception-free.

  • Efficiently told and features solid performances, but without the juicy character detail, vise-grip suspense or black comic intensity of its memorable forerunners, it unwinds as a boilerplate genre item.

    Jan 17, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The juicy dramatic possibilities of buried secrets and lies and cybertrickery are left unexplored. The movie's shade of noir is a dull gray.

  • The film's failure to raise the temperature gradually leaves viewers less involved than we should be.

  • [A] well-acted but rather slack drama ...

    Jan 15, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A solid, smartly wound little psychological drama that digs into some of the knotty qualities of mid-life adult relationships.
