Twelve years after the phenomenal success of Kenny, director and actor Clayton Jacobson reunites with his brother Shane Jacobson in Brothers’ Nest – a blackly funny and very different sort of film.
On a cold morning in the middle of country Victoria, two brothers arrive at the family home with treacherous intent. Terry and Jeff’s motive is to make sure their dying mother’s plan to change her will in favour of her husband – their stepfather -– is upturned. It is all meticulously planned, but there is one crucial thing the boys didn’t take into account – spending an entire day together. Old grudges, different world views and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other. Brothers’ Nest is a pitch-black tragic comedy about family, loyalty and murder – demonstrating that ‘brotherly love’ has its limits. Also starring Sarah Snook, Kim Gyngell and Lynette Curren.
Brothers’ Nest, which received rave reviews following its World Premiere at SXSW in Austin, Texas last month will premiere in Sydney at The Sydney Film Festival, and be on general release from June 21 in local cinemas. MA15+
