BROTHER TIED

  • Description
  • Cal and Aaron are two brothers whose relationship is clearly

    very troubled. Cal forms a friendship with a young man, Cassius,

    from a very different background. When Aaron goads Cassius

    into a fight at a Christmas party and Cal stands by his

    newfound friend, a series of events begins that exacerbates the

    tensions between the siblings into open hostility and finally, real

    conflict. Intense, emotively rich, and very real, Cianfrance's

    universe is one in which his protagonists' desires, needs, dreams,

    and ambitions are simple, yet profound and consequential.Geoffrey
