MY BROTHERS DREAM AWAKE (2021) Neighboring Scenes

Two brothers are sent to juvenile hall where they fall in with a group of friends who help keep things sane. However when a new rebellious teen arrives things begin to heat up.

Based on a an actual incident this is a solid drama about brothers, friendship and life in a lock up situation. Largely not following the typical conventions of “prison” films the film gives us a view of life we don’t typically see in the movies. Its a prison that is slightly less brutal than what we expect. Its not you typical band of harden kids. The result is more emotion and our leaning into the film because it's not doing what we expect. It also breaks our hearts when tragedy stikes.

I Really liked the film a great deal.
