Hermann Kermit Warm (Riz Ahmed) is going to die: Eli (John C. Reilly) and Charlie (Joaquin Phoenix), the Sisters brothers, can be counted on for that. Though Eli has never shared his brother’s penchant for whiskey and killing, he’s never known anything else. On the road to Warm’s gold-mining claim outside San Francisco — and from the back of his long-suffering horse — Eli struggles to make sense of his life without abandoning the job he’s sworn to do. Based on the award-winning and critically acclaimed novel by Canadian author Patrick deWitt, The Sisters Brothers marks the English language debut of celebrated director Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone, Dheepan). It pays homage to the classic Western and then transforms it into a comic tour-de-force that captures all the absurdity, melancholy, and grit of the West.
