Brotherly Love (and Hate) is Blind
16 March 2017 | by christonr-64261See all my reviews

A story of disability, rivalry and jealousy; My Blind Brother raises the interesting conflict of duty vs. desire in the form of its two core protagonists: Robbie (blind) and Bill (brother). This dichotomy is only further enhanced through the introduction of Jenny Slate's character of Rose, who provides a very literal representation of the metaphor at the film's heart.

Conceptually, the idea is fun and functional enough, however this does not elevate the action much beyond- what feels like - very low production values and generally low ambition; especially when considering the relatively high profile of the likes of Adam Scott. Admittedly, some of the scenarios which are devised or concocted do lead to genuinely enjoyable character interactions and memorable moments, yet there are times when glaring plot holes are concerningly evident; and worst still character motivations, decisions and actions are left unexplained (or probably more likely left on the cutting room floor). Considering its potential, this was a somewhat disappointing effort from a cast and plot capable of much more.
