In 1850s Oregon, a gold prospector is chased by the infamous duo of assassins, the Sisters brothers.
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 rides hard with his younger sibling yet dares to dream of a normal life. The younger of the two, hard-drinking Charlie has taken charge with gusto as lead man on the duo's assignments. Each increasingly questions, and quibbles with, the other's methods.
Audiard (‘Rust and Bone’, ‘A Prophet’) reimagines the cinematic Western as a dangerous, witty, and emotionally cathartic exploration of what it means to be a man. Also stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed.
