Movie on my Mind

And I can't get it out. Hopefully someone here can help.

I have this scene from a movie I watched some years ago, but I don't know the name of it, who's in it, or any other scene. I'm not sure if it was a regular feature, a made-for-TV movie, or a mini-series or what, but I'll describe the scene, and if anyone knows what I'm talking about, please let me know.

There are 2 kids. Brothers, I believe. The older one (I think), for whatever reason (jealousy), hates the younger one. The older kid is a tad evil, kind of like Culkin in The Good Son. They are at a cabin on a lake, and they take a boat out onto the water. A parent/guardian tells the kids to be sure to wear their lifejackets. The younger kid goes in the water for a swim, without wearing his lifejacket (possibly at the suggestion of his brother). The kid is a pretty good swimmer, but gets tired, and wants to get back on the boat. He asks his brother to help him up, to pull him in, but the older kid doesn't help. He watches his brother drown.

It's a disturbing scene, which is why I guess it's stuck in my head. Any ideas what this movie might be?
