Movie Info

On a cold morning in the middle of country Victoria, two brothers arrive at the family home intent on murdering their stepfather Roger. Terry and Jeff's motive is simple--killing their step---dad will render their dying Mother's plan to change her will in his favor redundant. A staged "suicide" has been meticulously planned but there is one thing the boys didn't take into account, spending an entire day together. Old grudges, different worldviews and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other. 'Brothers' Nest' is a tragic comedy about family, loyalty and murder--because after all "blood is thicker than water".


Critic Reviews for Brothers' Nest

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (3)

Though brimming with pitch-black comedy, "Brothers' Nest" actually plays like more of an absurdist tragedy as it pits good brother against good-brother-gone-bad in a cautionary tale of longing and desperation that packs a surprisingly affecting punch.

All of it is razor-sharp, darkly funny, and tense.

Mar 13, 2018 | Full Review…

This is a comedy that's blacker than pitch, and tethered enough to unexaggerated human behavior that it can really commit to the consequences of its characters' colossal stupidity.

There's much to enjoy in this darkly comic update of Cain and Abel.

A slow build gives way to a fiery conclusion as Brother's Nest proves a slow burn thriller must-see.
