Brother's Keep (1992) documents the curious affair of the Ward brothers of Munnsville, New York. Directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, Brother's Keeper follows Delbert, Lyman and Roscoe Ward in the aftermath of their brother William's death in 1990.
Delbert was accused of the murder by suffocation of his brother William as they shared the same bed. The Wards had been farmers and that's that. They were uneducated in the strictest sense, but their rustic simplicity presents a wisdom which the highest of scholars might never attain.

Starring Colin Farell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes, In Bruges was marketed as a Mamet-esque quick talking shot-em-up in the vein of Guy Ritchie; and, indeed, it has those elements. But it is so much more as well. For what starts with the violent gusto of a dark comedy quickly develops into an extended meditation on the nature of guilt, remorse and the possibility of redemption. And just like that, the city of Bruges is transformed from a picturesque little town “in Belgium,” as the advertisements remind, to a kind of purgatorial ‘between space’ in which we witness our characters wrestle with their pasts and contemplate their futures.

This fits in well with the Humanties Program unit on Freud
The Peterborough Players will present the play “Freud’s Last Session,” by Mark St. Germain, this summer from July 7-13.
Description - What if Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis had met and were posed with the ‘questions of god’? Mark St. Germain explores the possibilities with a host of arguments, witticisms and further questions, many of them drawn from the written work of the two men themselves.
