Lovers Of Hate (2011)
LOVERS OF HATE is a delicious tale of deceit and sibling rivalry, two adult brothers, Rudy (Chris Doubek of THE CASSIDY KIDS) and Paul (Alex Karpovsky of TINY FURNITURE), represent failure and success. Younger brother Paul is a successful author who writes Harry Potter-like fantasy novels for children, while Rudy, Paul's childhood collaborator on the stories, moves from job to job, unable to get started on his own novel--the long-gestating "Lovers of Hate." The one thing they do have in common is their love for Diana (Heather Kafka of "FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS"), Rudy's soon-to-be ex-wife. When opportunistic Paul whisks Diana away to a romantic mountain retreat (in Park City, Utah, incidentally), the lovers have no idea that Rudy has made it there first. read more From the shadows of the posh chalet, Rudy tries desperately to sabotage their relationship in director Bryan Poyser's (DEAR PILLOW) brilliantly executed game of cat and mouse. A testament to three star-making performances and a tightly constructed script, LOVERS OF HATE, delicately balances humor and despair while pushing characters to painful and hilarious extremes. There are no clear winners in this savage comedy about curdled love, but it is one enjoyable ride.
