Movie Info

Two adult brothers, Rudy and Paul, 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, 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. From the shadows of the posh chalet, Rudy tries desperately to sabotage their relationship.

Critic Reviews for Lovers of Hate

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

An unusually perceptive examination of fraternal rivalry and failed ambition.

February 11, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5

A 2010 Sundance favorite, this inventive (and inventively thrifty) character study from Austin indie stalwart Bryan Poyser never flinches from the intractable sibling resentment at its core.

It lingers in the mind, thanks largely to its trio of actors -- especially Alex Karpovsky, who brings a riveting sense of spontaneity to depicting the younger brother's slow-burning rage.

Designed to make you laugh and squirm, Lovers of Hate does more of the latter.

June 29, 2010

The film is at its best as a comedy milking an elegantly simple locked-room premise.

If you were ever wondering what Die Hard would have been like if Neil LaBute directed it as an art film, prepare to enjoy Lovers of Hate.
