The Brothers (1947)
A young orphan girl named Mary arrives on a remote Hebridean isle to become a servant to the Macraes, a family clan who are arch rivals of another family on the island, the McFarishes. Her arrival inflames a murderous competition between the sons of the duelling families with both Fergus and John determined to wed her.
A rarely screened British melodrama from the Gainsborough studio (from a ground-breaking script by Muriel Box) with glowering Skye landscapes and the evocative quality of a Scottish ballad. In a break from tradition, the film substitutes the novel's unhappy ending with an even unhappier one.
