Do you think Sally El Hosaini’s My Brother the Devil is any good? Not sure? Really? Why not just look a few lines up at the film’s new poster, which we’re pleased to exclusively debut here on Film School Rejects. See all that praise? See all those laurels? It’s fair to guess that the new British release (and Sundance and Berlin winner) is pretty damn good.
El Hosaini’s debut film was crafted at three different Sundance Institute labs (Middle Eastern, Screenwriting, and Directing) and has gone on to make the festival quite proud. A tale of two different brothers – James Floyd as the mixed-up Rashid and Fadi Elsayed as his adoring younger brother Mo – My Brother the Devil chronicles the pair has they both attempt to work their way out of a life on the streets with different aims and different results.
My Brother the Devil will open in NYC on March 22nd and Los Angeles on April 5th.
