Review Based on a story written by her brother, Among Brothers is supposed to be a true tale, but good luck finding any historical information about this case. Everything in the film is fictionalized -- there is no Bergan University -- so separating the truth from "the facts" that the brother uncovered during his ten year search for what really happened is an exercise in futility...The film is overall an amateur affair, with low-grade video and some pretty awful acting. As a condemnation of the fraternity system, I'm prone to almost endorse the thing, but really, this barely scrapes by as entertainment, art, or history lesson.

Review By focusing less on Jennifer and more on the three men attempting to maintain the cover-up, Schwert places a lot of faith in his cast. For the most part, it's a good choice. Mercer is especially believable as Ethan, who manages to bring sympathy to a character most people would have little trouble sending to the gas chamber. It's his performance, as well as Schwert's ability to convey the guilt and panic felt by those responsible as the authorities close in, that keeps "Among Brothers" from becoming maudlin or preachy. It's currently making the rounds at film festivals and is worth a look.
