That should be some sort of outlawed nomenclature: The Art of War, but director Jim Sheridan has done an amazing job showing the devastating effects of war on an American family through the art of filmmaking. It is the highest form of art when he is able to propel the wonderful actors - Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhal and Tobey Maguire among others - to create such a wrenching experience of war. Wars that were promoted by the last administration as a means of protecting the American family in fact destroy it from within.
A question and answer session after the preview with two of the actors, Natalie and Tobey, the director and a producer of the film, moderated by the Chief Curator of the Museum of the Moving Image, David Schwartz, was quite fun and informative.
Go see Brothers.
