Brad (Ben Schnetzer), a young man traumatised by a recent car jacking, attempts to move on by pledging to the college fraternity of his brother (Nick Jonas). The brutality of "Hell Week", however, pushes him further to the edge. Assault, humiliation, and toxic masculinity ensue -
this most certainly isn't. The dark world of machismo-driven fraternities is unearthed and makes for horrific viewing at times. If you're not repulsed throughout, you're not paying attention. This isn't shock for shock's sake, though, as the film shows the savagery of the fraternal tradition, and the need to belong in all its ugly reality. The backbone of the story is the relationship between the two brothers, as Schnetzer and Jonas maintain a strained but believable bond. Also, keep an eye out for James Franco's wild cameo. Although it hammers its message home,
has some valid points to make. Just make sure you don't eat before watching it.
New college student Brad is desperate to fit into his new surroundings, so taking a cue from his older brother, he decides to pledge a fraternity. All goes well at first as he attends parties and meets several girls, but as he enters into the final stretch of the pledging ritual-known as hell week, Brad finds things taking a violent turn as he has to endure a series of brutal initiation rituals. Fact-based drama, with Ben Schnetzer and Nick Jonas.
