The Elephant King - DVD

Seth Grossman's psychological drama The Elephant King concerns two brothers who have very different outlooks on life. Jake Hunt is a scientist working in Thailand who, dissatisfied with much of his life, does little work and lives his life in a state of great excess. He invites his younger brother, Oliver, to visit. Even though the two have a strained relationship, Oliver accepts as he has been suffering from a severe depression. Oliver joins Jake in nights of excess, and falls in love with a girl whom Jake is paying to be nice to Oliver. As the threesome heads toward a tragic conclusion, each brother questions his own motivations for his actions. The Elephant King had its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide
