Hello, Oscar bait. Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire will star in director Jim Sheridan's 'Brothers' (opening Dec. 4). The film follows Grace (Portman), a young wife dealing with the presumed death of Marine husband Sam Cahill (Maguire), killed while at war in Afghanistan. When Sam's brother Tommy (Gyllenhaal) steps in to help Grace rebuild her life, they develop a mutual attraction. In an unexpected twist of fate, it is revealed that Sam never perished and will be returning to his family.
