U2 enters the Best Original Song

U2 enters the league of the best once again.


Jim Sheridan’s Brothers is surely one of the most anticipated movies this year. The film stars Natalie Portman, Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal. Now with a cast like that nothing can really go wrong. Brothers is a remake of Susanne Bier’s film.

Now with the Oscar prediction rampant in the last couple of months of the year: U2 has just come up with a song for Brothers. The song is called Winter and it is also part of a short film that accompanied the groups last album No Line on the Horizon. But the song was actually done for the Jim Sheridan film.

U2 have already featured a song in a Jim Sheridan movie called In The Name of the Father. The song in that is really unforgettable. The song is to transcend the thoughts felt by a man after coming from a war.

Now the best performances in this film will be from the kids. They will have to outshine their adults to make this film truly special. Brothers will be released by the end of this year.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.


  1. this song is incredible and really fits the feel of the movie. you feel the emotions raise when it comes in … i liked Susanne Bier’s version too but this one hit me a little harder being that it’s based here in the states. i really hope this movie (and song) gets the awards it deserves.

  2. I am a big fan of the Danish original so I was a little skeptical that the American version could live up to it, but it exceeded my expectations. Great direction by Sheridan and not as overly-sentimental as it might have been. Also, what a great song for a great film!
