Critic's Pick

'The Brothers McMullen'

September 22, 1996|Kenneth Turan

This 1995 film was written, directed by and starred 26-year-old Edward Burns (pictured center with Jack Mulcahy, left, and Mike McClane), who also stars, on less than a $25,000 budget. The vagaries of the heart is what "Brothers" is about, as well as the related questions of commitment, fidelity and the demands and benefits of family. Burns' native wit keeps things loose and natural, as does the pleasure at being exposed to an unexplored setting for romance. Maxine Bahns (pictured) also stars (Cinemax Friday at 8 p.m.).
