A cynical and quirky Australian crime movie, Brothers’ Nest focuses on one day in the lives of two would-be criminals. Two middle-aged brothers reach a remote house where they grew up and which their stepfather is due to inherit shortly. They intend to kill their mother’s husband and have devised a foolproof plan. However, the perfect crime begins to unravel when details of their hidden motives emerge and their conscience takes over.
Clayton Jacobson’s new feature shares the Coen brothers taste for melancholy and fascination with a certain form of inevitability, here, a relentless and unstoppable criminal machination.
