Brooklyn Brothers

Recently broken up with by his girlfriend, underachiever Alex (O'Nan) embarks on an impromptu road trip with his new bandmate, the eccentric Jim (Michael Weston). By channeling their inner children and giving a new meaning to the term "lo-fi musician," Alex and Jim find their unique musical style by bringing the sound of children's instruments to their unsuspecting fans. Playing a series of bizarre shows and experiencing multiple near-disasters, Alex and Jim's persistence takes them on a true coming-of-age journey - one that may be their last shot at achieving their youthful dreams.
Writer/director/star Ryan O'Nan's new film, Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best (synopsis above) is set to hit theaters on September 21, but you can see it a bit before then, because BrooklynVegan is presenting a FREE screening of the film at Knitting Factory Brooklyn on Monday, September 10. Doors open at 7:30 PM, the screening starts at 8 PM, and admission is first come, first served. We will also be giving away some movie-related fun stuff at the screening.

I expect a range of comments from scathing to outright offensive by people who have never, or will never, see this film.

Ok, I'll start....

"...find their unique musical style by bringing the sound of children's instruments to their unsuspecting fans"

Unsuspecting?? These 'fans' would be more blown away if the band could actually play real instruments.

"A bro-mantic Once if it had been directed by Cameron Crowe in his prime" sounds like some level of hell I hope to never experience.

The synopsis sounds insufferable. The trailer confirms it.

My name is Michael Weston. I used to be a spy. Until...
[phone rings - voice on phone: "We got a burn notice on you. You're blacklisted."]

When you're burned, you've got nothing: no cash, no credit, no job history. You're stuck in whatever city they decide to dump you in.

You do whatever work comes your way.

You rely on anyone who's still talking to you. A trigger-happy ex-girlfriend...An old friend who used to inform on you to the FBI...Family too...if you're desperate.

Bottom line? Until you figure out who burned you... you're not going anywhere.
