The Sisters Brothers
Opens Oct 26, 2018
From acclaimed director Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone, A Prophet), and
based on the novel by Patrick deWitt, The Sisters Brothers is a
reimagining of the cinematic Western as a dangerous, witty, and
emotionally cathartic exploration of what it means to be a man. It is 1851, and Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are both brothers and assassins, boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world. Hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss, the Sisters brothers find themselves on a journey through the Northwest, bringing them to the mountains of Oregon, a dangerous brothel in the small town of Mayfield, and eventually, the Gold Rush land of California—a journey that will test the deadly family ties that bind. But, can it also be the path to rediscovering what remains of their humanity? Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed co-star as a learned scout and a fugitive chemist.
