Perhaps a little far fetched in so far as brotherly relationships, but yes I could imagine a relationship like this but not so intense as the film portrays. I liked the story line and the acting was good. The underlying story about youth suicide, shows quite clearly how sensitive young people are about the way they are portrayed by their peers.
Youth suicide is a big issue in most so called civilized countries, unless we get rid of the bigetory, and name calling within our youth culture its not going to get any better unfortunately. Unfortunately this subject matter is swept under the carpet here in Australia, and education authorities are lothe to talk about it, even the news papers do not report suicides. I believe this would be good viewing for upper primary school children, and into high schools..
At least the film portrays a happy ending but only just.....
