Eleven years after their breakthrough in Kenny, Clayton and Shane Jacobson have gone to a very dark place in their new film Brothers’ Nest. The siblings play brothers with murderous intent in the black crime drama directed by Clayton, which had its world premiere in the Narrative Spotlight section at SXSW, Texas.
On a cold morning in country Victoria, two brothers arrive at the family home intent on murdering their step-father Roger. Terry and Jeff's motive is simple, killing their step-dad will render their dying Mother’s plan to change her will in his favour, redundant. The staged “suicide” has been meticulously planned but there is one thing the boys didn’t take into account, spending an entire day together. Old grudges, different worldviews and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other and by the end of the day, three people will be dead. “Brothers' Nest” is the very blackest of comedies about family, loyalty and murder–cos after all “blood is thicker than water".
Starring Shane Jacobson, Clayton Jacobson, Kim Gyngell, Lynette Curran and Sarah Snook.
"has a quirky pathology that keeps developing. It's less a film about murder than about brothers, and to some extent, parents" Paul Byrnes - Sydney Morning Herald
