Good, but prepare for violence
So, it was not clear from the synopsis before we went that it would have that much violence. However, it was a very good plot to follow, with a basis in a true story. I do not recall seeing the lead person in any other films, but was very good.In fact almost all of the acting is very good. While some might find it ridiculous that these 3 brothers can actually survive, it is relevant to the storyline, and for myself and the group I saw it with, it worked. The only gripe I have is with the ending...it does feel almost surreal, and not quite sure how it evolves to that outcome. It may have been in the interest of time, given the length of the movie , to not be able to provide the evolution between one point in time and the ending.
As for the "nudity" or "sex" mentions by others...really?!! I found it realistically done, and so seamless to the storyline, that it worked. In fact, more alluded to and occurred off camera.
