Like so many first-time Director/Writer/Actor's, Anthony J. Caruso got in the way of his own production by trying to wear to many hats in this his first big film endeavor. There is a story here, as future Brother Vito (Caruso) is caught between the call of God and the attractive summer handyman Gabe (Derek Babb). However, with Caruso's continually verbose writing, and a directing style that unnecessarily lingers too long on his characters, the just under two-hours feel like an eternity. As with most LGBTQ films, there is an array of secondary characters, many of who are either over the top like Vito's campy friend Tim (Chance McKee) and the exaggerated and stereotypical lesbian Blaze (Laurie Coker "A Dogwalker's Christmas Tale"), painfully slow paced like Joseph (David Blackwell "Brotherhood"), overly stiff like Brother Mike (Gerald Brodin), or corny like straight truck driver Eddie (Tim Mateer). And, don't get me started on the summer house gaggle of "Golden Girls" geese housemates. "Brotherly Love" is distributed by "Breaking Glass Pictures," and will have a theatrical release on August 3, 2018 and a DVD/DOV release on August 7, 2018. Already an Oklahoma LGBTQ Film Festival Best Picture Winner and Naveda International Film Festival Best Feature Film Winner, you to will soon have an opportunity to see if you find any reason to show any "Brotherly Love" here.
