Released:

Rating:
R
BROTHERS AT WAR is an intimate portrait of an American family during a turbulent time. Jake Rademacher sets out to understand the experience, sacrifice, and motivation of his two brothers serving in Iraq. The film follows Jake's exploits as he risks everything-including his life-to tell his brothers' story. Often humorous, but sometimes downright lethal, BROTHERS AT WAR is a remarkable journey where Jake embeds with four combat units in Iraq. Unprecedented access to US and Iraqi combat units take him behind the camouflage curtain with secret reconnaissance troops on the Syrian border, into sniper "hide sites" in the Sunni Triangle, through raging machine gun battles with the Iraqi Army. Ultimately, the film follows his brothers home where separations and life-threatening work ripple through their parents, siblings, wives, and children. BROTHERS AT WAR is a rare look at the bonds and service of our soldiers on the front lines and the profound effects their service has on the loved ones they leave behind.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Laura Kern

    Well shot but generically scored, Brothers at War has its share of potent moments, most of them with Mr. Rademacher's family in the States.

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times

    Rademacher's vigorous commitment to making the documentary, as well as to his large, close-knit family, deserves respect.

  • 60

    Variety

    Provides some interesting perspectives but also veers dangerously close to vanity project.
