Sure, you could rush out to the store this week and pick up a copy of the Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire led Brothers on DVD or Blu-ray, but that would cost you some money. Who wants to spend cash when they could just snag a copy from us cool cats here at Film School Rejects?
The fine folks over at Lionsgate have hooked us up with three copies of Brothers on DVD and three copies on Blu-ray and we want to give them to you. What’s the film about, you may ask? I’ll save you the trouble of Googling it:
A Marine about to embark on his fourth tour of duty, Sam (Maguire) is a steadfast family man married to his high school sweetheart, the aptly named Grace (Portman), with whom he has two young daughters. Tommy (Gyllenhaal), his charismatic younger brother, is a drifter just out of jail who’s always gotten by on wit and charm. He slides easily into his role as family provocateur on his first night out of prison, which is also Sam’s farewell dinner with their parents, Elsie (Winningham) and Hank Cahill (Shepard). When Sam’s Blackhawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains of Afghanistan, the worst is presumed, leaving an enormous void in the family. Tommy steps in to fill the void with consequences that will shake the foundation of the entire family.

All you have to do to snag one of these bad boys is comment below and please specify whether you’d prefer DVD or Blu-ray, or either. So pop on down to the comments and take one of two paths to victory: answer whether or not (and why) it’s ever okay to swoop in on your brother’s girl or just make us laugh. Preferably both. Then we’ll hook you up with some sweetness. Get to it!
