Turning Point in Plot -- SPOILER WARNING
This is only for folks who have seen the film (I saw it at the IFC Center in Manhattan and I anticipate it'll show up on IFC On Demand on digital cable).
I have a question about what makes the brothers finally stoop the violence. I realize that the basketball coach brother was always the more peaceful one. But was it seeing his enemy's kids with him in the backyard? Was that his turning point? Or something else?
I loved the film but I didn't quite see that internal climax happen that finally made him want to step forward and stop the eye for an eye stuff from going on and on. It is so unusual to see a film where a nonviolent act is the climax that I wanted that point to be stronger -- or maybe I missed it (I saw it with a restless audience that kept going in and out, either to answer phones or go to the rest room or something so I might have gotten distracted).
