Reading Harold Bloom for school reminded me that I wrote a convoluted synopsis for a movie a few years ago called BLOOM BROTHERS 2000, which combines BLUES BROTHERS 2000, THE BROTHERS BLOOM and Harold Bloom. ENJOY.
“Bloom Brothers 2000
Bloom Bloom (Adrian Brody) decides, many years after his “last con” that he must perform another con as a way to reconnect with his deceased brother, Stephen Bloom. His mentally disabled wife, Penelope, died very recently and the long con is the only way he has of remembering both her and his brother. Bloom Bloom seeks out his other, less popular brother, Harold, and decides that they should form a popular touring Blues Band and con music clubs across the US until they can ultimately con the foster care center in which they were raised. Harold Bloom, however, proves not to be the “story teller” that his brother Stephen was and spends the majority of his time criticizing the actions of Bloom Bloom. When Bloom Bloom ultimately decides that he would like to include more scatting in their set, Harold declares it to be the “death of art” and quits the band. Bloom Bloom questions whether a story is really written or not if there is no one around to hear it.”
