Brothers (2009)

Director: Jim Sheridan. Cast: Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Shepard, Mare Winningham, Carey Mulligan. 104 min. Rated R. Drama/War.

After mistakenly thought to be killed in action, traumatized soldier comes back from Afghanistan, and finds the life he had enjoyed falling apart, with himself playing an active role in the devastation - making some wish he had "stayed dead". Some powerful acting by Tobey Maguire (surprised he wasn't nominated for an Oscar). Call it a smaller, contemporary version of The Deer Hunter.
