'The Sisters Brothers' gets a final trailer and character posters
Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, follows two brothers who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss
Annapurna Pictures has released the final trailer and four new character posters for Jacques Audiard’s dark comedy western 'The Sisters Brothers' featuring John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Riz Ahmed.
Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, follows two brothers who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. The story, a genre-hybrid with comedic elements, takes place in Oregon in 1851.
Watch the trailer below:
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. They have blood on their hands: that of criminals, that of innocents... and they know no state of existence other than being gunmen.
The older of the two, introspective Eli (Reilly) rides hard with his younger sibling yet dares to dream of a normal life. The younger of the two, hard-drinking Charlie (Phoenix) has taken charge with gusto as lead man on the duo's assignments. Each increasingly questions, and quibbles with, the other's methods.
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?
'The Sisters Brothers' also stars Jake Gyllenhaal as learned scout John Morris, and Riz Ahmed as fugitive chemist Hermann Kermit Warm.
