Dictionary definition of “broheim”
broheim n. brother; friend, buddy. Also broham, brougham, or (rarely) broheem. , ,

Editorial Note: This term was recently popularized by the movie A History of Violence. Etymological Note: The Berkeley High School Slang Dictionary (2004, North Atlantic Books, Berkeley, California) says that the brougham variation derives from the Cadillac Brougham, a high-end sedan; however, there is no substantiation for this and it is highly unlikely.

...

2006 Missy Schwartz Entertainment Weekly (Feb. 10) “William Hurt A History Of Violence” p. 64: One moment he’s embracing his long-lost brother Joey (Viggo Mortensen) with great affection; the next, he’s calmly ordering his goons to whack that same “broheim” for treachery.
