Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has some very sad Bambi-style moments and some violence, mostly off-screen. The tiger cubs' father is killed and their mother is shot and wounded. Sangha mauls a dog (we only hear about it and it's made clear that the dog wasn't killed) and Kunal is beaten (off camera). There are tense confrontations and unhappy relationships. Some kids may find it uncomfortable when a mother is attracted to someone other than her husband and believes he is flirting with her, when a child loses his pet, or when characters speak harshly to each other. A strength of the movie is the positive portrayal of an inter-racial and inter-cultural romance. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
Two Brothers is the story of magnificent creatures gorgeously photographed in a story that is quietly told and genuinely touching. The images are stunningly beautiful, with breathtaking close-ups of the twin tigers, who are expressive and moving both as frisky cubs and as adults. The story is truly told from their point of view, with long spaces of no dialogue. It's a true gift to see a story that trusts its audience enough to let them discover the story for themselves and that understands the eloquence of silence.
The human characters are vivid enough to give the story more depth and context, but not so much that they interfere with the fairy-tale like journey of the heroes of the movie, Sangha and Kumal.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
