Given that the two bear a passing resemblance to each other, and given that every time Tobey Maguire has been rumored to be leaving the Spider-Man franchise, Jake Gyllenhaal was inevitably listed as one of his possible replacements, it's kind of surprising that it took this long for somebody to make a movie where they play brothers. And in a movie named Brothers, no less.

Maguire plays Sam, a young Marine about to ship out on a new tour of duty. He'll leave behind his lovely wife Grace, who looks a lot like Natalie Portman (Natalie Portman). Returning to Sam's life at precisely wrong time is Tommy (Gyllenhaal), Sam's roguish younger brother recently released from prison. After a helicopter crash in Afghanistan and leaves Sam missing and presumed dead, Tommy does his best to fill the void in the grieving family, a task which may or may not involve filling a void in Grace, if you follow me. Overseeing the melodrama in question is director Jim Sheridan.

Lionsgate is ushering the squabbling Brothers onto Blu-ray and DVD March 23rd. The press release is vague about the special features, but apparently you can look forward to "numerous bonus materials that include two featurettes plus a director commentary."
