A few days early, ETOnline has premiered an early look at the trailer for the upcoming war drama Brothers.
Brothers tells the powerful story of two siblings, thirtysomething Captain Sam Cahill (Tobey Maguire) and younger brother Tommy Cahill (Jake Gyllenhaal), who are polar opposites. A Marine about to embark on his fourth tour of duty, Sam is a steadfast family man married to his high school sweetheart, the aptly named Grace (Natalie Portman), with whom he has two young daughters (Bailee Madison, Taylor Grace Geare). Tommy, his charismatic younger brother, is a drifter just out of jail who's always gotten by on wit and charm. He slides easily into his role as family provocateur on his first night out of prison, at Sam's farewell dinner with their parents, Elsie (Mare Winningham) and Hank Cahill (Sam Shepard), a retired Marine.
What you don't see in that shortened synopsis (above), is that Sam gets reported KIA, and the rest of the family moves on with their lives. Shit hits fan, however, when Sam resurfaces with what looks to be post-traumatic stress. Check out the drama below:
