Brett Sprague is a violent and psychopathic man, who is released on parole after serving a sentence for assault. As he returns to his family house and we watch him and his brothers, Stevie and Glenn, for the next 24 hours, it becomes clear this day will not end well.Written by
Some people argue that Brett is a prisoner in his own home. I argue that Brett is a prisoner of social-class, but he is superior in this class. He is a God-like figure who ignores his Mother's authority. He is frequently placed with lights above his head, symbolic of a halo and heavenly presence. In fact, Brett even goes so far as to say that 'we are all Gods in our own world'. Brett is not imprisoned in his home. Rather, he is imprisoned by his social-class location. In this social class he is superior. He is a God in his own world rather than a prisoner.
