Brute is a film about the twisted beauty of fate, that focuses on Mac and Jesse, a pair of typical disenfranchised youths who have turned to robbing houses as a form of recreation and quick cash. When they break into a house late one night and discover that they’ve raided the home of a man with a much sicker hobby than their own, will they finally take this chance to right all the wrong they’ve spent their lives doing or save themselves and walk away?
MAC- Female, Early/Mid 20s, pretty if you wipe away all the white trash, hardened by the realities of small town trailer living, a faint twinkle of the childhood dreams to escape and become somebody remain buried deep inside.
JESSE- Male, Early/Mid 20s, his seemingly dimwitted humor keeps longtime best friend Mac’s demeanor light. Coming from the same side of the tracks and accepting his fate as “the failure” at an early age, hints of a long lost intelligence paired with his aloofness keeps him charming. Practically the Lennie to Mac’s George.
YOUNG GIRL- Female, 10-16 years, battered and bruised, the victim of the Man’s cruel side, seems frail and frightened but the strength of vengeance boils deep within this sweet and innocent girl.
MAN- Male, 35-50, a seemingly average blue-collar middle aged man, but inside the overall-wearing, beer loving, hard working middle American, lies a sinister secret.
