A gap textual content on this film quotes Jane Austen’s phrases: “What unfamiliar beings brothers are.” No disrespect to Austen, however Cain and Abel beat her to that common fact, which has run by way of motion pictures as various as “Drive of Evil,” “Scanners” and “A Easy Plan.” So, this film’s author/director, Alex McCauley, or somebody near him, has learn some Jane Austen.
