Brothers

Tocmai am văzut un film nominalizat la două Golden Globes. Unul pentru prestaţia lui Tobey Maguire (care joacă tristul rol al unui soldat american traumatizat în imbecilul război din Afghanistan) iar altul pentru melodia lui U2 numită Winter. Şi pe care o puteţi asculta mai jos în versiunea de pe genericul de final al filmului, una mai slabă zic eu decât cea care apăruse iniţial. Mai există un moment U2 în film, acela când Jake Gyllenhaal şi Natalie Portman fac poştă un joint în timp ce ascultau Bad şi îşi mărturisesc că în adolescenţă amândoi ascultau over and over again această melodie. Citez de pe u2.com:
"In the film, opening in the US today, a decorated Marine (Tobey Maguire) goes missing overseas. 'His black-sheep younger brother (Jake Gyllenhaal) cares for his wife (Natalie Portman) and children - with consequences that will shake the foundation of the entire family.'

Director Jim Sheridan has been friends - and occasional collaborator - with U2 since their earliest days in music. The band saw a rough cut of 'Brothers' last year and wrote 'Winter' for the film during the recording of 'No Line on the Horizon'. The soundtrack also features another U2 song, 'Bad'.

'Jim's stories have a kind of simplicity, usually, at the plot level and the complexities are in the drawing of the relationships,' Bono tells the LA Times. 'This one though is actually quite a complex plot line. He really went for this one. There are very strong feelings in this. It's a powerful, powerful film.'"
