Movie Info

Two adult brothers, Rudy and Paul, represent failure and success. Younger brother Paul is a successful author who writes Harry Potter-like fantasy novels for children, while Rudy, Paul's childhood collaborator on the stories, moves from job to job, unable to get started on his own novel -- the long-gestating "Lovers of Hate." The one thing they do have in common is their love for Diana, Rudy's soon-to-be ex-wife. When opportunistic Paul whisks Diana away to a romantic mountain retreat (in Park City, Utah, incidentally), the lovers have no idea that Rudy has made it there first. From the shadows of the posh chalet, Rudy tries desperately to sabotage their relationship.

Critic Reviews for Lovers of Hate

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

An unusually perceptive examination of fraternal rivalry and failed ambition.

February 11, 2011
New York Times
Top Critic

A 2010 Sundance favorite, this inventive (and inventively thrifty) character study from Austin indie stalwart Bryan Poyser never flinches from the intractable sibling resentment at its core.

Village Voice
Top Critic

It's among the most unjustly underseen American indies of the year.

Top Critic

It lingers in the mind, thanks largely to its trio of actors -- especially Alex Karpovsky, who brings a riveting sense of spontaneity to depicting the younger brother's slow-burning rage.

Designed to make you laugh and squirm, Lovers of Hate does more of the latter.

June 29, 2010
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

The film is at its best as a comedy milking an elegantly simple locked-room premise.

Audience Reviews for Lovers of Hate

½

I found myself waiting for this film to end. The tone was ambiguous, which is admirable but frustrating, in how it tried to combine comedy and horror-stalker elements into a tone that was muddled and uninteresting. The characters were all childish, beyond belief, to boot. I feel like the concept was good but I was underwhelmed by how the story was concocted around that concept.
