" Seething with grit, dark humour and a brotherhood that's twisted in a dark love ... visceral and stunning, one of the early gems of 2018 ... highly recommended, 9/10" -

" A Coen Brothers comedy ... becomes a Hitchcockian thriller .. Brothers' Nest will make you laugh, then hold tight to the armrest of your seat, then ultimately cry" -

On a cold morning in the middle of country Victoria, two brothers arrive at the family home intent on murdering their stepfather Roger.


Terry and Jeff's motive is simple - killing their step-dad will render their dying Mother's plan to change her will in his favor redundant. A staged "suicide" has been meticulously planned but there is one thing the boys didn't take into account; spending the entire day together.

Old grudges, different worldviews and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other. 'Brothers' Nest' is a tragic comedy about family, loyalty and murder - because after all "blood is thicker than water".

Brothers' Nest had its world premiere at SXSW Festival in March 2018.

The film was released in Australian cinemas on June 21 2018.
