Why on earth did he stay?

Full review

After a promising start I found it completely implausible that Tom, even allowing for his grief over loss of his lover, would hang around being abused by the repressed homo brother. It just didn't add up. The story about the homo-erotic repressed relationship has been done far better elsewhere (Brokeback Mountain and Power of the Dog spring to mind for starters)
