ReviewSource Variety
Review A young man takes an awfully long time to discover what the audience already knows -- that his disabled brother is the most precious thing in his life -- in "My Brother," a heavy-handed redemption story fresh off the African-American fest circuit. Heading up pic's nearly all-black cast, Vanessa Williams delivers a decidedly non-glam performance as the mother who wants her boys to stick together. Pushing uplift instead of action, white writer-director Anthony Lover brings sensitivity to both the cultural differences and his "special" young stars...Pic would have done better to reveal the brothers' childhood dynamic earlier. Instead, it's not until long after the thugs who hired Isaiah show up at his apartment -- roughing up poor James in the process -- that auds even get a sense of their relationship. Strong acting helps, including impressive perfs from two special-needs thesps.
